Played a gig on Sunday that was sponsered by a group of people that bought a bunch of brand new equipment for a backline. They had an Ashdown 2/10 combo. I was the first to use it. 2nd song the speakers went out completely. The tweeter still worked, speakers completely gone. I plugged into the PA and did the best I could to compensate. The amp didn't recover. I shut it for a while (thinking maybe it had some sort of overload cutoff), but the amp was a gonner. My warning: Ashdown amps may not be all that dependable. My question: I had the amp set with the mids and treble at about 7, all the EQ boost buttons were out (inactive), regular and master volumes on 3, BUT I had the bass cranked to 10. I was plugged into the active input, and my MM bass was at about 3/4 power (volume and EQ). The owner of the amp claimed the speaker blew cuz I had the bass on the amp cranked. Any clues as to what may have happened. I feel badly about the incident, but I don't feel I was at fault at all.
