    My eden stack (bought used on TB) has recently started buzzing all the time, from low to high notes, I've tried adjusting everything on my head and can't change it, it sounds like a mild overdrive pedal almost, any idea what it is and how I could fix it?

    also while I'm at it, anyone know where I could get a replacement tweeter for this cab?

    ...this whole cab is not working out how I imagined :confused:

    could be wires resting on the speakers
  3. somtimes the air pressure coming out of the 1/4 speaker jacks on the cabs will sound like distortion plug them up and see if its a fix.

    after trying both suggestions, neither one of those seems to be the problem

    The front grill and place your hand on a loudspeaker cone and move the cone in and out without distorting the alignment of the cone, you are listening and feeling for the voice coil touching or scraping against anything like the voice coil gap/magnet pole piece. If you find a driver that scrapes thats the one to change, are you sure you cant hear which speaker is making this noise. Eden will sell you a replacement Tweeter Diaphragm.

    sorry to beat a dead horse, i tried bassmecs suggestion and mothing scrapes, so I took the speakers out and checked the wiring...all checks out...the buzzing is just getting worse, what is strange is when the note first plays it sounds fine, but as it sustains the buzz gets worse and worse, one thing I noticed when taking the cab apart was that a lot of screws were really loose and hardly held at all, could they be causing the noise?

    You have three major parts, and you have to isolate the problem:

    bass > amp > cabinet

    1. Try a different bass and cable (Nothing else in the signal chain between bass and amp).

    2. Try a different head.

    At this point, you will know where the problem lies. This makes it much easier to troubleshoot.

    I've used different basses, still buzzes, I don't have another head but I'm almost completely sure the problem is from the cab, it's old and beat up, and when I took it apart some of the screws didn't hold

    it just may be the head, so try another head when you have the chance. how about the speaker cable? are you using a speaker or an instrument cable?

    Yes. Make sure all the speaker mounting screws are tight, and do the same with the grill mounting screws. I had some PA speakers with this problem and doing the tighten-up took care of it.

    ALso put pressure on the cab itself. a old loose cabinet can start to rattle and sound like a dist. pedal. Put pressure on the back wall of the cab and then the sides.

    Also do the speaker cone check with sound and the cones unpowered. When you have sound going thru the cones though..just lightly press against the surround..if the buzzing stops.. the coil has seperated and is freely moving...you dont want that.

    in october Lane did a clinic at Bass Specialties and had 2 410XLT's he was gonna use for the clinic and they BOTH did that out of the box. He used my "Vinny Rig" for the clinic because it was clean. I heard what was up with those cabinets.
