I am of no help at all.
They are davemade copies if it helps
I think the 900 model had 1 or 2 large red power leads and a big bolt on the Back of the case for ground...
If it is the amp I am thinking of a Guy named Steve built them here on the west coast, i think it is the same guy that built Pirate amps.....changed the name a few times.
Some had a MRF 455 driving 4 2290`s some had a 2290 driving 4 2sc2879`s and so on depending on the model.
TX 800, La900 and a few smaller ones.
They were good amps IF you keep the dead key into the amp very low.
The heat sink is very small for a Amp with that transistor set up, that is why it has two fans and the heat protection built in.
The case is pop riveted on, and you have to be careful when drilling out the rivets so as to not damage the board or components that sit very close to the rivet holes, same thing when putting it back together, if the new rivets/screws are too big/long same damage.
Lots of cores used in that amp, wrapped around the power leads, big Teflon coated wire, there is a lot going on inside that amp in a very small package.
I have never seen a Drawing of the inside of that amp.
HITECK REDNECK asked the same question some time ago and no results.
There is another thread here also that shows some pictures of the inside of the Amp if you search around a bit.
Here are some Pictures of the 500 model built by the same guy.
Thanks to pede69 for the Pictures.
Good Luck in your Search.
Yup! 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag, probably worked ok but too much on that heat sink.
The 667V is a 1x4
1 2290 driving 4 2879`s
the TX 800 is also a 1x4 2290 driving 4 2879`s
The heat sink on the left is a 667, the one on the right is a TX 800
( sorry about the quality of the Pictures, these I took this morning with my cell phone, my good Kodak has died for some reason)
The 667 is well know for running hot, and the 800 has an even smaller heat sink....I am sure this is why the builder put dual fans on it and the over temp protection.
Also note how T/S has the 4 2879`s spread across the heat sink, were as the 800 has all 4 transistors stacked next to each other.
I am not saying that the 800 is a pos, what I am saying is that the 800 needs to be run very carefully to avoid overheating it they were made for a very low dead key and I would not swing more than 12 or 15 watts into one......that is why I have this heat sink.
I gutted it to rebuild another TX 800 that I got on flea bay, and sold it.
I do NOT like Amps with built in drivers
It was in a bunch of stuff i bought when a radio shop here closed, this amp was fried inside, who ever owned it by-passed the temp sensor so the amp would keep running....I "guess" he got tired of the relay tripping out when the amp was overheating....the "more power syndrome "
Hi, Jeff...been a while, I have not heard from.. but is this the same thing I was speaking of? Its a LA 900 is all I know.......
Dx has been good here on the west coast, have you been on the radio?
Yes Jeff, I talk to wesy coast all the time, John Denver with the cardboard crown.......haha. Sorry no pics. Thank you very much Jeff. oh, I,m looking for 2 2312 finals if you can help...
