    So ive been trying to figure out whats wrong with my rig---at first i thought it was my head but figured out its the cab. It has two speakers if you arent familiar with the B212, one in the top left, one bottom right. The bottom right speaker is fine but the top left speaker is messed up. No actual tone really comes out of it, it just rattles and makes a muddy sound, which gets worse and worse the lower i play. So im assuming this a blown speaker but i dont really know so what do you guys think?

    Also how hard is this to fix/how expensive? I might be able to send it back and get Avatar to fix it but i dont know. Any help is greatly appreciated
     
  2. Blown speakers usally aren't covered. New speaker probably around 100 bucks from Avatar directly.

    Call Dave at Avatar and see what he says.

    Man that sucks. So you think its a blown speaker? I would have expected to notice it...like some loud popping noise at least. Nothing like that happened. Just kinda slowly got worse and worse.

    Is it Neo or Delta?? Pull it out, and see if the wire is just loose. That has happened to me before. That Neo cab only handles 500 watts, and that is pushing it. If you've hit it harder, you may have fried it. Check for the loose connection first.
