Ampeg 210 HE problem...

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by freebeer, Dec 31, 2004.


  1. I think this cabinet is blown...It sounds awful on the low notes(E or lower...5 string). It's distorting and crappin' out every low note. Anyone have a problem like this? I don't know how I could have damaged the speakers though. I never pushed it to hard.

    Yes, I checked the obvious things, bass, amp, cables, and the complete rig sounds great until you plug that cab in. All other cabs sound good.

    Sounds like voice coil rub to me.
     
  3. So does that mean that the speakers are shot?

    Yep.

    When my cab had the same symptoms as you're experiencing,
    a recone solved the problem.

    Don't boost the Bass EQ,
    or your move the master volume past noon.
