Peavey TNT 115
So I got a used Peavey 115 from Guitar Center for $315 all together and every thing seemed to work fine and looked good (with the exception of having to airdust out the grill and a few scratches here and there). I played it at home for a bit on a bass that is obviously not giving enough power because on my other amp I hardly hear it and the other bass I practiced with was way louder on it. Now hear is what I am getting too. It kept cutting in and out when I would hit the strings hard. So I kept adjusting things trying to figure out what was going on. I turned on and off the EQ and no help, I turned on and off passive active and it helped but was alot lower in volume I guess to makeup for the power of actives which I wasn't using. I then turned it back to passive and turned the compressor on but all the way to 0 and it seemed to fix it. I come home and google my problem and it seems I had the pre gain too high (the one thing I didn't check). It was almost all the way up. I only had the volume at 4 but considering it's pretty loud 4 is plenty. SO my question is by turning on the compressor and using it with the compression all the way down, did I run the risk of blowing my speaker? Since I had the volume only at 4 should I be ok? I will definately turn down the pre gain when I go back to the practice space next Thursday.

Hate to say it, but there's something wrong with it if it's cutting out when DDT is active. If you keep using it like that, it's going to fail. It needs to be serviced. Sounds like you have a problem with one of the power amplifier class D control circuits.

I can't remember if I had DDT on or not actually :-/ I will have to try that next time I go to practice. If I still have problems I will get it looked into, thanks.
