HELP! Ashdown MAG 250 gave out...

    There is no communication between head and cabinet. There is connection between bass and head because VU meter responds but there is some issue between the head/cab connection. When cabinet was connected as an extention speaker to a Fender practice amp, the cabinet responded.

    Please help w/ any advice.
  2. so the speaker cable, instrument cable and bass are all in fine working order...

    If that's the case you could have a problem with a pretty large number of things! It's quite odd you've got no output whatsoever so it could be the case that the power section has died or it could be as simple as a faulty input/output jack!

    good luck!
  3. The same sort of thing happened to me during a gig. I was using a MAG 250 combo with an extension speaker and it just died, but it was ok an hour later.

    After talking to Ashdown it turned out to be a thermal cutout cos the amp had just overheated - it was a hot day. I sent it back to Ashdown and they fitted a fan which solved the problem.

    Have you tried it since it croaked?
