    Anyone know the value of the resistor that ties to the input from the radio where the jumper goes? This one is burned. Looks like may-be someone tried to drive it.............Thanks for any help....

    750 maco

    Also there is a jumper that runs from pins 2 to pin 6 on the pre-driver and the other two drivers that connect to the finals, but I can,t seem to see what that is! Is it a resistor or coil? .....talking about the 47 ohm, what wattage is it? Also that resistor or coil looks like a 22ohm resistor, but what wattage? But it may be a coil, can,t tell, it is burnt to bad.........thanks for any help

    Schematic does not give me wattage for the resistors, 1 or 2 Watt would be a safe bet.

    the 22 thing is a choke, 22 microhenry choke most likely, do you see how the 22 symbol is different than the 47 resistor symbol?

    Link to better schematic, first one had some flaws in it.

    I can not tell for sure but if it is a 22 thingy it is an choke on the pins two and 6 most likely. Maybe some other member will post who has a Maco 750, I have the baby brother the Maco 200 sitting on the shelf in the shack.
