Re: MANUAL OR INFO NEEDED
It may be hard to find this. I did find a link to a manual, but it was dead:( You best bet for information is the Carver Forum. Not official, but I am sure that if you have one of these amps, there are many enthusiasts at this site that will be happy to help you.

You can do it, you would just need a Pre-amp for the mic to work without major feedback. They range in price from 50 and up. An inexpensive PA system would be a better way to do this. You can find decent ones for personal use for under 300 that are well built and come with a mic. Check www.Zsounds.com, They have something for any price range. Hope this helps
Get a separate amp for the 901's and the rest falls into place.
1,2, 5) Place the 901 Active EQ between the pre/main front OUT of the receiver and the TFM-55X. Attach the 901's. Keep track of the jumpers you remove from the receiver. Or replace the jumpers with RCA splitter cables so you still have pre/main connection but can share the output with the TFM.
3) Pinnacle subwoofer (self-powered?) to the subwoofer out of the receiver.
4) Bose (AMS???) 5. As surrounds on the receiver. Place the sub module toward the rear so it mates sonically and directionally with them.
What? No center speaker? I'd get something more robust with bass capabilities, like a pair Bose 301 series 1's because the tweeters face in one direction only.
Except for the amps and the cube stuff that is essentially what I have. 6.1 with full-range speakers everywhere.
Carver designs in general are not easy to repair. I would recommend that you send this unit into a Carver authorized service center. The likely problem is the output transistors, but the driver circuits and predrivers are not simple designs and if there is a problem there, it could effect the outputs. Tracing this will require equipment and schematics that I don't believe are available on the net.
check the continuity in your cables. you will need a multimeter or something else to check the cables. the multimeter is about $10 or so. other than that, make sure that your turntable is actually giving output and that the pre amp is both recieving and sending(same with the regular amp. and make sure that the levels are up on everything and the speakers connected properly etc. you probably know this already, but sometimes a good, friendly reminder helps. good luck!!
