EA iAMP Combo

  1. Hi All,
    I am new here and had a question for anyone using the iAmp combo with the 1x10" coax.
    Just got the amp 3 days ago. When I got it home I noticed a little flutter in the speaker, even at low volumes. Well, the speaker blew at my gig last night. I wasn't really pushing the thing, I had the master on 4. I play a 4 string spector, USA and run it flat with just the bass control pushed a hair. As for the amp settings, I ran it flat with just the contour I switch and bright switches engaged. It was sounding amazing. All of a sudden the speaker just went, great fuzz tone .... Ha Ha.
    So, what is the experience some of you are having with this amp. I am suspecting the thing was on it's way out when I picked it up. It is brand new, but was a floor model. Hopefully EA is real good with customer support, I live in NJ where they are made and hope I can get a new driver tomorrow.
    I would appreciate any feed back.

  3. Hey Brad,
    You were right about the service! Here it is Sunday, I wrote to EA and was answered by John. He said that he will UPS out a replacement speaker tomorrow!!!! Now that is the kind of company I want behind me.

    I had a similar experience with my first VL-110. The speaker came with a rattling cone -the shipper had beaten it up in transport. I sent it back to Club Bass and Dave put a new speaker in for me. The EA guys are great too. I run the iAmp 600 with 2 CXL-110's and I love this rig!

    I picked up my EA VL-110 in pretty much mint condition from cb1 here on talkbass earlier this year . . .and now starting to look at the iAMP Combo too --
    it's nice to know about EA's customer support if I will ever need them.
