    $89 delivered to my door for the Eminence, which I much prefer to Seismic Audio. What happens if the switch gets thrown while you're playing? I looked at some jacks that actually break the connection from the source when you plug something in. That would be the ideal set up but I was going for cheap and reliable.

    The switch is recessed on the plate cuz the place recessed into the back so there's no chance of the switch being thrown unless you do it manually nothing can hit it at all so that should answer your question

    Has anyone tried a 2-10 or 4-10 cab with the r 40 head.
     
  5. I've used the amplifier in the rumble 40 combo to drive two 10's, two 12's and a 15. Worked well with all of them. The driver pairs were wired in parallel for a 4 ohm load. The chip amp with the stock heat sinking are rated to handle a 4 ohm load and produce about 65w. Fender does not rate it for such use, so this surely voids the warranty. I've played it to just below where it turns dirty for extended periods, and it barely gets warm. OTOH, I played the Rumble 40 (S2010/8ohm load) in near 100 degree heat (no shade). The gig had to be moved outside due to unexpectedly good attendance. After 2 1/2 hours it was pretty warm, though not too hot to touch. I never push it into dirt - the overload distortion from this amplifier does not sound very musical to my ears. Operation into 4 ohms has been reliable for me, but ymmv. If you will be pushing it into dirt, all bets are off. Use an 8 ohm (210 or 410) cab if you want to be safe.
     
  6. Dang. So I should look for a used rumble 40 then.
     
  7. You didn’t add extra bracing to the cab when changing drivers. When using the “delta cab “ with a 100 + watt amp does the cab hold up ? is there rattle is the cab stiff enough? Have you used used the cab/ driver at the Deltas Max power rating?.

    I used it with my 500C and it hold up fine, although I didn't drive it too the absolute max.
    The cab is sturdy, I haven't had any rattle issues with it - although some items in the room started moving ;)
