Which fuse, the ribbon or woofers?

Yep, Dave is correct. I looked at my book and it does say MDQ4 for both, but my Plats have 3.2's for the woofers and MDQ4's for the ribbons, that's why I asked.

more on Amazing fuses

Post by thunkerer » Sun Jun 19, 2005 9:38 pm

I hope I can broaden this discussion by asking what fuses are recommended for each of the Carver Amazing Loudspeakers in their various incarnations? In my case I have a pair of oak Silvers in which a Buss 250V MDO4 fuse was installed. Is it critical to find the exact replacement or will any 4A slow-blo fuse of the same size be sufficient? Thanks in advance for your help.
