Anyway, prepped 1 chassis, I have a spare Tubes4HiFi v13 power supply, ZMOD line board laying around.
I grabbed the last I/O board that was available for the PAT-4, found a cool experimenters 7 pin miniature socket board, I have a 21 Step Volume control, ALPS Balance, standard selector switch in hand so I started wiring it up.
The PAT-4 has room for 4 110v outlets in the back. I am able to use 2 un-switched and 1 switched with the internal configuration.
I’ve got it put together…. Take a peek here:

I decided to keep the 3A Slo-Blow fuse in the AC supply line. In testing with the garage system, it warms up quietly, plays 2/3rds of a song before the fuse blows.
Should I worry? The Tubes4HiFi v13 power supply has its own fuse. Do I need a bigger fuse or do I just ditch the fuse all together? Let me know your thoughts.
