    hiho,I got a terror bass head and sp212 cab.
    Does your terror head ever get warm?
    I gig mine loudly and it is always stone cold.
    All the heads /combos I,ve used have been very warm to quiet hot when gigging at volume.
    Just an observation.
    Or am I not turning it up enough to produce heat.

    Micros just don't get as hot to the touch as other types of amps. Nothing to be alarmed about.

    I,m not alarmed,pleased in fact.
    Defo not silent by the way,oh no only does silent when in the bag.
    Just wondering if I wasn,t driving it hard enough-heaven forbid.I think I,m getting vibration stress fractures in my legs .
    A couple of gigs I,ve played lately the fixtures in the pubs have been rattling and I,ve played these before with old rigs and it didn,t happen-oh joy.
    Yup a cool amp beats a hot pie.
