    I have a 210 and a 212 that are suffering from what I believe to be failing 1/4" jacks. Buzzing and loss of signal in both but I tested with other cabs and amp works fine.The cabs are in a truck and I won't be able to get to them until the crew gets them out for the next gig.

    I was hoping that a 'talkbass' member may have some of these cabs (11/03 purchase) and let me know if I can switch out the jacks easily or are the jacks soldered onto a board? I would need to arrive early for the gig (YUCK!!!) but I could be armed and ready with a screw driver and some solder.

    Thanks,

    Better yet, just pick up the phone and call him. He'll probably answer by the second ring.
     
  4. I pulled the plate off the back of one of my CB112s and it should be an easy fix.All you'll need is a phillips screwdriver,solder and a soldering iron.No board ,just standard panel mounted jacks.

    Thanks BB2 for checking.

    I check the crossover.....basically a low pass capacitor. Solder joints were fine in both cabs. I actually soldered the tabs to the speakers the day I got them for extra peace of mind.

    Found out it's my power amp. :bawl:
