November 01, 2016, 02:04:08 PM
ok  the white number1 is the 12volt wire i left that one alone the number two wire orange is the audio wire so i ran a solid core piece of wire threw the bottom of the plug and out the the top and bent it down and twisted it like a bread tie tight and black taped it the same with the black covered wire number 3 i taped it all up and ran soldered two extention pieces of ? gadge awg wire i forget to the switchcraft plug for the guitar cable drilled the hole in the back all i need is a handle on top final pics soon and one more amp maybe little later thanks ill be in touch
ok this should be my last post on this amp its all done and back together with a socket on the back and it sounds just like my gorilla gg20 amp with out the distortion and loud as hell just one more question the second speaker hookup on the back says 8ohms would a 4ohm 12inch speaker hert it or wate until i get another 8ohm speaker anyway thanks for all your help 
this is weird i got 12 volts coming out of the white wire huming from the orange wire and black i guess its ground the dam plugs are so tiny needles were to tiny so i used little tacs ill have to solder wires to the tacs then just push them in and tape em tight and hope i dont get hum sound maybe with a 68k resister on the plug ? i have 6 7 great guitar amps why am i messing with this thing thank for your info it helps a lot.
