Installation
Installation
The MA6450 can be placed upright on a table or shelf,
standing on its four feet. It also can be custom installed in a
piece of furniture or cabinet of your choice. The required
panel cutout, ventilation cutout and unit dimensions are
shown.
Always provide adequate ventilation for your MA6450.
Cool operation ensures the longest possible operating life
for any electronic instrument. Do not install the MA6450
directly above a heat generating component such as a high
powered amplifier. If all the components are installed in a
single cabinet, a quiet running ventilation fan can be a defi-
nite asset in maintaining all the system components at the
coolest possible operating temperature.
A custom cabinet installation should provide the following minimum spacing dimensions for cool operation. Allow
at least 2 inches (5.1cm) above the top and 1 inch (2.54
cm) on each side of the amplifier, so that airflow is not obstructed. 21 inches (53.3cm) depth behind the mounting
panel, which includes clearance for connectors. Allow 1-1/
8 inches (2.9cm) in front of the mounting panel for knob
clearance. Be sure to cut out a ventilation hole in the
mounting shelf according to the dimensions in the drawing.

Packing Instructions
In the event it is necessary to repack the equipment for shipment, the equipment must be packed exactly as shown below. It is very important that the four plastic feet are attached to the bottom of the equipment. This will ensure the
proper equipment location on the bottom pad. Failure to do
this will result in shipping damage.
Use the original shipping carton and interior parts only if
they are all in good serviceable condition. If a shipping carton or any of the interior part(s) are needed, please call or
write Customer Service Department of McIntosh Laboratory. Please see the Part List for the correct part numbers.
