  • I'd like to install the fixed depth mod on my JCA22H, but am still confused about how to do it. Do you think you guys could post some pics or something showing where to connect the wires?

      Not a big rush. I actually have 2 JCA50s because I like it so much, a backup is a must... so i got the time. Whats more important is a complete and accurate list and instructions. As far as didstributer, as long as I get the right stuff, it doesnt matter. Are there kits available?




      No one sells kits.

      Why do you want it to be fixed?

          I want to keep the chassis stock and do not want to drill holes in it.

            you could remove one of the output jacks that you don't use and put the pot there. a couple of other people have done it like that on the 50h.

            you should do it like the xl mod if you still want fixed depth.

            • Hey Edge, is this "XL" the same for the 50h?

              • So if I unsolder the wire (Shown with red arrow in picture) from the output jack board and insert the resistor/cap combo between there, is that the right place for the depth mod?

                  Ah didn't know that the 22 had the output jacks on a board. They are hand wired on the 50h and the 20h.

                  in that case if you still don't want to add a hole You can just wire it up like the xl mod.

                    I don't know why you would want to have a fixed depth instead of a pot unless you don't want to drill new holes.

                    • Thanks for the info. The mod went fine, but I'm not sure I'm digging the sound with the 220K resistor. Guess I will have to try the pot so I can vary the resistance.

                      • So, if i wanted to do a depth mod on my JCA 22h, do i have to drill a hole then? Or is it still possible to do it like the 20, and use the superfluous (for my purposes) second 8ohm out? I was hoping to do the depth mod as my first mod...

                        • Hi All,



                          I have a problem with my JCA100H (

                          got no guitar sound from the overdrive channel, just a buzzing noise (buzz stops with gain at 0).

                          clean channel is still working fine.

                          I've tried to swap out preamp tubes with no results.

                          I've also tried to plug in directly into the return, it sounds OK to my ears.



                          Any idea before I send the head to a tech ?



                          Cheers,

                            If you aren't technically inclined It is best to just send it to your tech man.

                            You can it's just harder. It's best to just drill the new hole.

                                Im not sure you understand me or if Im understanding you on this. Im asking about the XL mod itself. First, is the XL mod and the Depth mod the same thing? second, I'm still trying to get info on all parts needed and "how to" information on both the depth mod and the SLO mod. Depth mod is more my gear than any other. and for the record I like the pot... putting it in my amp just seems wrong. I kid!

                                thanks again people!
