Q1 T wiring information required

The B band pre amp on my Amber Trail failed, so I went to Long & McQuade to look for a replacement.The salesman suggested I try the Q1 T and I agreed. The unit arrived a week later and I had hoped that they would install it for me. Here comes the shocker, L&M wanted $180. plus tax for the install, then if it needed a setup, add another $50 plus tax. This is insane. I took the Q1 T ($140) home to do the install myself.The Q1 T has a smaller faceplate, so I constructed an adapter plate,…See More

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly.
