    Hello all!

    Well, as you may recall in my last post called "2000RB is Dying"
    my 2000RB was in fact dying.

    After less than a month, I now have my GK back and I must say that it sounds great. I noticed less noise immediately and I was really able to start messing with the EQ. I stayed "flat" on the EQ for so long because noise issues, but that has been reduced.

    The problems I had before seem to have dissapeared for now.
    It sounds great wth my Acme B4.

    FYI, they replaced:

    2 - RTR551
    2 - 2SC3502
    2 - Pot, 50KA

    Does anybody out there know what these parts are, and what their function is for the 2000RB?

    Again, Thank you Daniel Elliot for helping me. I really appreciate you taking the amp over for repairs.

    Mike

    Huzzah! :hyper:

    Glad to hear that the old girl's still alive and pumpin'! :D

    NOW will your entrails feel the power of a fully powered Acme Low B4. Prepare to SHAKE and QUAKE! :bassist:

    Just remember to leave those tweet and mid attenuators on the back of the cab full up... so your Acme don't BAKE! ;)

    Good to hear your amp is working! It was probably the Acme that made it die on you... ;)

    Your joking right? Do you really thank that the ACME made the GK break? I can give the ACME all of what the GK has, but I wont. The Acme can take it thats for sure.

    Don't have a GK. That said, I wish to heartily thank Dan for his assistance in righting a boo-boo. Customer service will work wonders for ALL manufacturers!

    Yeah I was kidding about the Acme making your amp die! Sorry about that... :) How does the B4 sound with the GK? The low end of those speakers is outrageous.

    That was funny. Well, Its Sounding real good. The Acme is really a great speaker cab.

    For a while I wanted MORE from the Acmes and was thinking of getting more power amps and some B2's. Now I think that I am fine as far as low end is concerned. Ill just stay close to the cab during practice.

    I think my Acme was purchased in 1996 so I may do a speaker change in about a year or two, if I need to. I will also take it down to 4 ohms.
