Bad Connection?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by metallicarules, May 24, 2003.

  1. So, more speaker trouble for me. I thought my speaker was blown, but it magically started working again after I disconnected it and reconnected it for the 5th time. It worked for 3 days and now it cuts in and out. When it is making noise it is usually all distorted, but now and then it sounds clean. This leads me to believe that it is a bad connection, not a damaged speaker. I tested all the different parts and seems that the connection problem is most likely in the terminals of the speaker itself. It is a shot in the dark, but can anyone tell me if there is anything I can do, what I should look for etc...?

    I'd be removing the speaker from the cab entirely, attaching some speaker wire directly to the speaker, and do the 9v battery test. I'm testing the see if the speaker is ok.

    Or, get your soldering iron out and re-solder the input terminal of the cab. If you don't own a slodering iron, you should.......
