The labels are white and are on the cables just before the BICC connector. You should have one per cable. They are dot matrix printed and fade over time. They can also wear off if handled a few times. It's well worth your time to make sure everything is well labeled before you unplug anything. On my 4064, every label for 32 channels were worn off by Pro Audio Design who decommissioned it. What a pain it is/was to meter every line from the patch bay.

Also if your console is all original, many of the ribbon cables used to use paper labels on the connectors. On my last 56 frame E series they just fell off with one touch. I always use a sharpie and write the connector location on the ribbon. On newer consoles with the connector location printed on the connector, I still label them. Easier to see a large S3 then to search and fight to see the top of the connector.

I see that you're in New York. Im just outside Toronto, about 8 hours from you. If you still haven't touched your console in 5 weeks or so, I have a 56 channel console that I will be decommissioning and moving. You're welcome to drive up here and I will teach you exactly how to split your console, as you will help split this one. Be warned, I put people to work,  ;).

Any other questions or concerns can all be answered while you're here.

There is not much change in efficiency between 120 and 240 Vac, still needs the same power. Going to 240 does reduce the wire size needed for the same power level (Power=VoltsXAmps)

In theory, in the US, going to 240Vac would give you the advantage of balanced power, as that is inherently what it is. Any individual installation can of course have its own realities, just because its balanced voltage in setup doesn't mean the load is balanced, and that could possibly have an effect on interference and harmonics. A supposition.

By the way, "120 per leg = 240! " is still single phase. There is no "two phase" in actual usage, only single and 3 phase.

  Were you referring single phase 240,  120 per leg ? .. I found 120 single phase sounded much better than 120 per leg = 240!  Now if your in europe and can do single phase 240v  that sounds great!

Frank,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide all this information.

I really appreciate it.

I will go to the storage where the console is and review the frame and see if I can find the split point in the cross bars.

I could not find any labeling for the black BICC connectors, so I guess I will need to label all of them in order to keep this organized, correct?

I will post an update once I complete this move.

Again, thanks a lot for the info.

Best,

Louis
