    I purchased my new cab about two weeks ago, Pr410HLF, and was extremely siked. Sounded great until yesterday when the supposedly bullet proof tweeter farted out on me. I haven't even been pushing it hard and now I've got to deal with this problem. Anyone else have a similar problem with an Ampeg cab? How are the folks at GC going to deal with this? Are they going to have to send it out to get fixed while I wait impacientley, or will they replace it when I bring it in? Just wondered what to expect.This sucks!

    does it have the same light bulb fuse that the classic series cabs have? If so it's an easy fix. Although I would be a little worried about why it blew in the first place unless you hooked it up wrong (it happens that's how I found out about the fuse) On a side note I just found out from my local dealer that Ampeg has discontinued the PR series speaker cabs. I was real surprised because I have heard nothing but great things about them.

    Yeah that sucks that they discontinued the PR series. I never got a chance to play through one because they dont stock PRs at Guitar Center :D

    The fuse (light bulb) is located inside the cabinet. You can get to it by unscrewing the tweeter control/plug-in plate on the back of the cab. All you have to do is change out the bulb. Were you driving your amp to clipping?
