I agreed to take a look at a Peavey 410TX cab for a friend. He was having problems with it cutting in and out on him, and since I at least play bass and know what ohms are, I figured I couldn't do any damage to it. I figured that I would go by some wiring diagrams, and just totally rewire the speakers, and start from there. Upon inspection of the speakers, I noticed that the little wires on one of the speakers in particular were not connected. Problem #1- these wires appear to be ropelike cloth(I am assuming fiberoptic??) I tried sodering them, of course this didn't help. How do you connect them? Problem #2- I am not sure how the previous owner had this wired up to bypass this speaker because I didn't pay close attention when I was unconnecting. Question#1- Can the amp just be ran like a 2x10 to see if the problem also lies somewhere else. Help please!!!! #2 - can the speaker be fixed?
