I am troubleshooting a Kustom PA50 mixer/amp that I would like info regarding specifications, schematic, and speaker specs. I am thinking this is a mono unit and the two speaker 1/4" jacks on the back are for two speakers in parallel...but I could be wrong. Are these 16, 8, 4 ohm or what impedance speakers? Label says not to go lower than 4 ohms. Is that for each jack (speaker)or for total combined?

Hi, this is a latter model Kustom than the vintage stuff we noemally deal with here. I have helped many folks with schematic for the vintage stuff but am unable to hhelp you out with that model.
If you go to the new Kustom amplification site and request a schematic for that model from their service dept, they can email you one.

The amp is mono, so its designed for two 8 ohm cabinets which would make for a total load of 4 ohms.
From what I have seen of these small type PA heads they use output packs that are cheap and easy to replace, as I am betting that although you did not post what your problem is, that is the PAs problem, no output.

Steven,
Thanks for the info. By the way, I was referred to this site by the folks at Kustom.com as they told me that 'it is too old and they have no records of this model. Some of this, they admitted, is also due to their poor record keeping from the early days of Kustom.' Guess I'm caught in the 'gray area' of Too Old...but not old enough.
