    I was practicing with one of my bands today. I was doing this little slap lick and immidiately my sound cut out of my Avatar B410. The only sound I could here was coming from my horn. Any idea on what happened? The speakers are still in great condition.

    Thanks

    Check the connections to the speakers by removing the jack panel. Also, check to make sure the solder connections at the jacks are still solid. If they're not, there's your culprit.

    Anytime, hope it helps!
     
  6. There also might be a crossover in the cab. Some crossovers use little light bulbs (automotive 'dome' light kind) as a protection circuit...and sometimes they blow. It happens occasionally with peak wattage spikes. You might want to check that out.
     
  7. It is my understanding there is no crossover in the Avatar 410. They use a simple capacitor to filter the horn.

    This means the drivers are wired in a series/parallel arrangement. If all (4) drivers have quit, you have lost one of the two jack wires, either at the jack or a common connecting point at one of the drivers.

    Simple fix.
