Overheating a WT800

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by nil, Jan 13, 2002.


  1. Running one side of my Eden WT800 into a 4Ohm load at full noise (which is normal for me) heats up the amp (and roadcase) quite considerably, esp. after a long set/practise.

    The amp has never cut out due to overheating, but could I get intro trouble when (if) I start running a 4Ohm load on either side?

    I mean, if I decide to run an 8x10 on each side of the amp, will it survive?

    I hope you're wearing ear plugs.
     
  4. You guys are priceless! :D

    Earplugs - yes. We play far too loud for the music we produce!

    I'm just wondering in case the option ever arises - we're playing a large festival on Friday, and might've been able to secure one of the main stages with 2 x 8x10's at my disposal. As it turns out we've "scored" the slightly-less-than-main stage, with one 8x10.

    Maybe I should've worded it "Does anyone run both sides of their WT800 at once?" :D

    I'd KILL to run a couple of 8x10 through an Eden head.

    Even better, run 2 Eden 8x10s through an Eden head....great, now there's drool on my keyboard....
