Slowly but surely.

looks amazing well done.
In my experience all the "extra cables run back to the patchbay and the BICC go to the VU / PLASMAs meters so it's only a matter of chopping those off.
Having said that I would just leave them there or even better try and locate a couple of buckets and restore it to the extended 64 channels...  ;)

Hi Guys,

Anybody care to share time estimates on doing this for one guy? Will have multiple guys for any of the heavy lifting, but doing this all myself. Also, fair price range to charge?
4K,6K,8K Series / 651 section slot 22 cap >help<

I do not know wht is this cap for. It is a 1,5uF 50v electrolitic capacitor wich I have replaced by 1.5uF 63v film capacitor. After replacement, I have some issues , but I am not sure if it is because of thet, I also have changed other things so...

I would apreciate if someone could tell me what is this cap for.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

Awesome. It takes guts to put a console frame over the fence.  8)
Very interesting stuff. Thanks for the info. I've heard of the mod but never truly understood how or why it was needed.
Thanks again!

Hey everyone!

Thanks for all the help lately!
We got her in the back door of the building on the second floor today. What a feat.

Anyway, once we got her in we walked away and left myself with lots of questions. It was a long few days and such.

The main part of the console is a 48 frame, there is an add on section to make it a 64 plus producer rack. I don't think I'm gonna add that back on.
Included was the rails for a 64 channel and the rails for the original 48 build! Score.
Since I have the rails to bring it back down to 48 length I'm in good shape, but the wiring for the rest of the add on is bundled into the bucket beside where the add on goes.

Has anyone ever done this type of reduction?
Is the wiring removable? Easily? Is it wired to the centre section or attached to the end of the original wiring like a jumper from a main mother board type extension?
I didn't look, I'm not going back till Monday now and want to prepare.

Second questions is, is there any special thing I need to know when putting the rails, legs and end bits back together, like.  Specific order of procedure? Some things to watch out for? Etc.

This is gonna be fun.  I have boxes and boxes of parts. Spares. Extras. Literally everything this studio had from day one of their purchase to the last day of it existing there. And everything they bought along the way.  Bulbs, screws, spare power supplies, tons of  spare plasma meters, nicely packaged boxes of  spare plasma glass bits(tubes?) a spare monitor for the centre. A spare E centre section from the upgrade to G, and Another  spare centre section!
Like super score! So stoked.

NB : yes that was the ONLY way to get her in. Trust me.
Adding a resistor to the cold side created equal impedance on both legs,
for true common mode rejection on the buss ribbons?
