    Those of you who have seen (or of course own) any of the larger Fender Rumbles will have seen the flashing lights along the bottom, which I think look pretty groovy...

    I'd like to replicate that on my own cab, so wondered if anyone had done something similar and would like to share their know how, and/or wiring diagram for the circuit?

    TIA.

    ....but I'm hoping you're not talking about the bulb wired in to buffer the tweeter.

    Before you do anything else, try turning UP the tweeter attenuator (attenuating the signal makes the ciruit heat up)and turning DOWN the treble from the head.

    Does it stop?

    Err, no. They have a series of LEDs (I think) along the bottom of the cab that pulse in time to one's playing - tres cool!
