What type of cab? BA23 or BA123 'world box'? In the BA123 the left 4 slots
from the left are CD interconnect, in a BA23 just the left 2. CD
interconnect means you can put a half-height card in the 'top' of slots 1-4
(or 1-2) and not need anything in the bottom. Which slot are you putting the
TQK50 in?
