Ampeg B2 Combo Question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Eddy Flycatcher, Apr 4, 2005.

  1. I've bought a second hand Ampeg B2 combo. I only use it at home, so it never heats up very much. I have never seen the fan working, is that normal? Will it only come on when it senses a certain temp., or is it broken and should it start turning when I turn the amp on?

    Anybody out there with a B2 combo? :help:

    Many of the fans will only start up if needed. Most are tempeature-controlled, so that they will increase speed with increasing temperature.

    I didn't look up the B2 specifically. But if the unit does not ever shut off from overheating, then I would expect the fan isn't a problem.

    If you had a fan problem you would probably see overheating and shutoff in some conditions.
