Behringer Bass Head Cutting Out Issue

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Kaden Daniels, Apr 15, 2015.


  1. A friend of mine purchased a Behringer BXD3000h bass head.. When used it will cut one when playing .. So he returned it and they gave him another but it did the exact same thing we tried different basses different chordsand different cabinets .. Is a answer or is it just junk

    If you've had two head do this same thing, I'd be looking at other parts of your rig/signal chain to see if maybe you're running it out of spec.

    Big suspects:
    -Speaker cabinets and their impedance?
    -How much signal you're feeding the input.

    Out of curiosity, I'm interested in why the title..? You could interchange that name with any other... Ampeg, Fender, Gallien Krueger, TC Electronics amp from Hell? Any amp could cut out for a variety of reasons. If an amp caught fire and was problematic for months, that might qualify it as being from Hell... maybe..?

    How about, "Amp keeps cutting out?" In case you didn't know it, there are a lot of TB'ers here who like to bash Behringer/Bugera stuff.

    That doesn't actually answer any of the questions. Some amps handle impedance mismatches differently than others.

    What cabs? What Impedance are they? What's the front end signal chain?

  11. The impedance wasnt mismatched the Behringer handled 4ohms and we tried two different 4 ohm cabinets and a 8ohm same problem

    I understand. But you do understand how this would open a door of opportunity for bashers? However, it is your thread, and I wish your friend best of luck.

    Peace. :)

    There's something weird going on here. Not that Behringer is known for it's great track record for QC, but if you've had two brand new amps that have failed in the same way, I'm sorry that you didn't play the lottery this week because the likelihood of that happening is pretty astronomical. There's something one one side of the amp or the other that that design isn't liking. If this was a 'design flaw' this amp wouldn't be on the 'open market' I'd still opt for trying it 'in store' with different cabs, different cords and whatever unspecified whatever you're running into it's input.

    If you don't want to slow down, take a deep breath, and explain what's going on, we can't help you. I understand the Behringer head. What bass, what effects, which (specific) cabinets are you using? Where is this happening? At a gig? During practice? More than one location?

    This stuff is complicated, but it can be figured out if we have enough info. Details count.

    Do indicator lights flash that you can look up in the manual?
    What does Behringer support suggest?
