    Awesome rig there - thanks for the inspiration :D


    I’m thinking I’m gonna list my helix and use the proceeds to fund a new cab so I can run a stereo dmoll / 5153 rig

    Good news - the fan is really easy to change. Its a super common size.....Bad news - its a 24v fan.

    Cushioning the fan mounts had zero effect. Its a noisy fan.

    Ordered a new one to see if it might be quieter.

    Interim valve porn... 2018-02-12 20.21.37.jpg 2018-02-12 20.22.27.jpg
    The innards were (almost) completely dust free (brushed away what was there) which was interesting as the box is fairly open with only the top/bottom/front not made of mesh, and its 20 years old according to the serial number.

    I’m looking at the bottom pic and imagining those power valves are like 30 feet tall and I’m like 3 feet tall and the valves are all like glowing an eerie shade of green and the throbbing hum of electrons can be felt in my chest and then my pants fall off and then, and then. O I’m sorry I’m thinking this out loud again aren’t I.

    I had the opportunity to meet her in 1996, and I opted not to volunteer (she was doing an independent research project for school) because school typically wiped me out. I do not regret that decision, even in retrospect, because she would have left me with unrealistic expectations. :D

    Changed the fan. Much quieter, and it blows like the 20 year old.... one did.
    It still makes a sound which gets amplified by the back panel which is not fixed in place (by design), but it now damped with some felt.

    The Code cabs may be interesting, they are probably FR enough for the Code modeller. They are a bit on the wide side - unlike the tiny foot print / optimal speaker height / small foot print / stupidly heavy birch ply / very good looking/PA cabs.
