Mine got stolen. Has any one got a picture or has one for sale. Thanks. Sanchez.


Went to the Sundown a few times around 1978/79....they had a pair of Martin 215 mk1 (painted white) with a resonator box underneath,and a single Martin HF2 horn on top...very loud,despite it being a large club.
Be seeing you.

Which Sundown was it. There was one in Edmonton, north London, a certain Dj named Scott who worked there mentioned it to me. The one on Charing Cross road, was painted black, They used a pair of JBL 4560 long throw bass bins on each side. I can't remember the mids, and Altecs horn tweeters. They were really punchy. The tweeters were really loud and you had to stand at the back to hear them comfortably. They used the Disco IIImixer, connector to another mixer controlled by another engineer at the back of the auditorium.

Hello Graham,
The ones I have have straightforward connections for gram decks, tapes. I thought the aux are for additional cassette deck to connect to the back of the mixer. They have a ten pin connector for remote start of the decks. I went to Allen and Heath in Woodgreen a few years ago who drew me the instruction on how to connect up the remote starts.

Could you send me a picture of the internal pcb. I might be able to help. Is it a 60 mm or the 100 mm throw.
Cheers.

I've only just seen this thread. My pride and joy is an Eclar sclat.

Was broken when I bought it but Kevin did his magic fully working once more and round my mates, with his 1210's. Amps are CAudio 808 and 707. With an old pair of community tops and x1 subs. 

Will upload a photo when I sort out how to make it smaller.

I have also just bought a Peavey CS1200X and going to pick up another amp this weekend.

Mine too, but I had always wanted an 808 so just had to get one.

The rack I did tonight is light by comparison. I picked up a ppx900 to go with the CS1200X...
