View Full Version : [Help Needed] Carver M1.0
04-19-2010, 09:42 PM
I have a pair of Carver M1.0s. One is being used in stereo to power a pair of Monitor 10s. The other one can't be used because of serious popping when turning off. The caps getting old? Anyway I have in the past used these bridged in mono to play really loud but can't any more. Is it worth it to send these off for repair or just move on to more modern amps?

IMO yes it is worth it to send it in or get it repaired. That older Carver stuff is great.

Wow. It took you just a little over 5 years to make your first post? ;)
There's a couple of shops that make overhauls to Carver amps for not too much. It will be a lot cheaper than getting something comparable, and they will be good for another 20 years. I'm sure someone will provide a link.
oh, and welcome, I guess.

Yea, long time lurker. After a long time of apt. living from a divorce, I finally bought a house where I can really crank it up. Been thinking of using the Carvers to power some 15" subs and getting a receiver for the mains and surround.

I would sell those. Then I would use the money from the sale of the amps, combined with the $600 I saved in not getting them re-whatevered to buy a couple of different power amps, or maybe just one damn good one.
Those M1.0t's popped like nobody's business at shudown (especially with Polk) when they were brand new off the line.
here's a few shops:)
