And I have a good gig next week!! I have a 1.5 year old R1000 head,, And I just noticed tonight while practicing that its suddenly not nearly as loud as it should be! I checked out all the connections, tried 2 basses, 2 instrument cables, 3 speaker cables and both my cabs! I had it running on 10 on the master volume thru a 4 ohm 8x10 cab and it wasn't NEAR earthshaking! In fact my mom didnt even say it was that loud in the kitchen! Figures my 1 year warranty is up ,, Aguilar w/ 10 year all the way next time!! BUT PLEASE, UNTIL THEN HELP!!!! any suggestions or comments please! P.S; I should mention that tone wise its normal,, just half as loud as it should be!
