    3/4 amp fast blo. It's on the schematic for the RTA 12b (orig); it's also what my 12C's came with.

    We set record for rainfall in the triangle area, around the first of June, and then broke that 3 weeks later. Asheville has had twice the average rainfall.

    I've lived here most of my life and never seen the like!

    okay. I picked up replacement fuses for the crossovers and gold plated push connecters for the mid. I have clipped the wires from the mid, and the solder job is terrible. I have no way to remove the solder blobs on the speaker. since the connector is on a swivel-type "thing," (ok-laugh-I don't know how else to describe it) and there are 2 clips below the primary connecter, can I put the push connecters on these instead?

    Yes you can. Each terminal has two connection choices - use either one.

    You need a solder sucker, or just use the alternate connector.

    Those MW's are ~ 30 years old and the glue holding the magnets in place is probably getting a little weak. I'd pull all the MW's and epoxy the magnets for peace of mind.

    Glad your speaks are back and it was something simple.
