How

Post by EZ CHOPPER » Wednesday, 13 September 2017, 0:02 AM

I just picked up a old colt radio works great. How do I put Variable power in it and the other thing is, there any way to turn something on the inside to get a little more watts out of it. Please let me know if you can help. Thanks

Nice Colt "Midnite Special" and the Robyn " Executive" under it looks good as well, why ruin them doing mods, old radios like those in good condition are hard to find and worth some bucks unmodified.

If your wanting to run that radio, with that tube amp in your other post...I would leave the radio alone if it's DK'ing 4w's or less, and swinging 12w's or less...

The tube amp you have can handle a 4w dk...but can't handle much more than a 12w swing...

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
