    Hey guys, I searched for this on google and here and couldn't find my answer...

    I bought a PF-500 and a 115HE, but there weren't the longer screws to mount the head.

    Can anyone tell me the screw length and diameter to mount the head? Thanks.

    If you contact Loud (1-800-898-3211 or email technicalsupport@loudtechinc.com), provide them with your serial number, they can send you the proper "Ampeg" screws that go with the amp.

    Thanks, Beans. I emailed them asking for the screw size, here's the verdict in case anyone else runs into this issue:

    The screws are size M4 x 25mm.

    So about 1" metric. Any worries about whether or not to poke a hole in the vinyl to mount the head?

    25mm doesn't seem long enough. I went and bought m4 x 25mm and it just barely peeks through the wood of the lid.

    Well you got the wrong ones then 1" = approx 25mm.

    Top is about 17mm thick including tolex (spec says 15mm ply) and the feet are less than 1/2" probably 15mm.

    As for poking the holes, I cut mine with an Xacto razor knife.
