    Im new to talkbass so sorry if im in the wrong place to ask advise or something. My ashdown MAG300 is making the bass sound distorted at high volumes and has blown in the past with a need to replace the cone. Is there any advice anyone can give as to what I can do about this? Do i need a cab or something to distribute the volume?? I could also do with more volume aswell - will a cab aid this or do i need a higher wattage amp??? :help:

    Was wondering if you may have an active bass going into the high, or passive into the low. You should be the opposite of this.

    yessir, I know it sounds backwards, but go to the Ashdown site and download the manual, it explained it so even I could understand it!

    It's a combo amp? If so, an ext spkr would certainly help. More speakers equals more volume.
