    I am confident enough to handle my own repair work, but I desperately need the schematic to get off the ground on this one. Can anybody help me here?

    It is a Bass Amp, made by the brand known as Fender. Hence the need for a schematic.

    Sorry, my bad. I saw the word REPAIR and just assumed that it meant, well... repair.

    Cool Cool. An interesting note then having learned that... Is there any intentions to create a specific "Repair" group for all things that involve electronics? Obviously having a bass specific one is justifiable as there is so many different elements behind that, but the same can easily be said about effects, preamp and amp mods and/or repair.
     
  5. i just posted said suggestion as i think its a great idea!! nice one subculture.

    Thanks... I'll go add a note to it to second it. I think a mod's corner (meaning Modifications in this case) might be kind of cool. An all around place to swap mod ideas and schematics for amps and effects. Would certainly be a good home for the DIY type (like me) who want to make their own stuff sometimes.

    Ok, dumb question I am sure.... Where is the Suggestion Box forum? I looked and couldn't locate it.
     
  8. right at the start of the forum menus in 'Pauls Shack'

    Got it. Thanks. I added my 3 cents (because adding my 2 cents is never enough for me)

    I know that Fender Rumble 60 uses typical TDA7294 schematics for power amp.
    I dunno exactly about pre-amp, probably some usual pre-amp with EQ, like "blackface" pre-amp.

    Guys! need help!

    Is there any way I could get a good look into Fender Rumble 60 box and see how it's designed from inside?????

    I mean literally box design, I'm fine with electronics... I just need to know box design from inside!

    Anyone can help?????

    16.5 " wide x 9.75 " deep x 2.75 " (at back. 2.25" front) chassis


    Recommendations:
    Chuck integrated chip-amp,
    and build tube amp on chassis, mount it in separate Marshall-style box.

    ------------------------------

    12" underpowered "Fender Special" speaker, small magnet (prob.50w)

    Bass Reflex Cabinet w. slot along bottom:

    9" deep X 15 3/8" wide x 15 1/4" high (16 3/4" at back) interior box,

    = 2140 cubic inches (1.24 ft³, .035 m³ )

    with port/slot = 3/4" high x 16" wide, (12 Sq. In.)
    and about 7" deep. (84 cubic in. in volume).



    As it is, the cabinet has a horrible "honk/peak" with the low E string,
    and another one about an octave higher. Very uneven bass response,
    the four-knob EQ doesn't fix this,- not even in the ballpark.

    Recommendations:

    Put real 200 watt speaker in it,
    seal port with plywood block,
    add midrange speaker (in separate compartment) and crossover.


    Reinforce cabinet walls with crossbraces,
    and foam 3 sides inside to stop standing reflections.
