How to prevent a class d amp movement in a gig?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by rafitoprtx, Dec 1, 2021.

  1. As the tittle said I'm having this issue with my peavey minimega an my acoustic b410. It takes dives from the top of the cab twice. I strap it to the cab and still moves. I will appreciate your inputs. Thanks in advance!

    Say, “Stay!” firmly. Then, “Good dog.” :)

    Try a piece of non skid carpet pad on top of the cab. How are you strapping it down? The other thing I would do is put some dual lock on the feet or take the feet off and on the bottom of the head/top of the amp.

    I read here a lot of people use "Bar Mat" material (you know that rubbery mesh you see on the surface of bars?) which you can buy from Amazon and other places.

    I don't know if it will solve your problem but it's not very expensive and you can cut it to fit the rectangle that you need.

    I put a piece of rubber drawer liner on the top cabinet (sometimes I use 1 cabinet, sometimes I use 2). Never had an issue.
  12. My first thought... to avoid a movement on stage, don't eat the eat before performing.

    I use a 90 degree plug on my Speakon cable. When it's connected to the amp, it goes straight down, and it removes any leverage the cable might otherwise put on the amp. It helps the amp stay right where I put it.

    You can check and see if it might work for you.

    Although I don't have a problem with my D800, these are good for holding down the lighter class d heads:
