    Hey like a few other people on here, I am a bit unhappy with the tone of my Spector. I am looking for someone to send me some 2 year old diagrams of the dip switches for starters.

    Also, how would I go about wiring it for 18v?

    What are some other suggestions for improving the tone of this bass without changing the pickups?

    What would be a good aftermarket two-band vol. vol. preamp?
    (Ex. Aguilar OBP-1. Any others?)

    I was hoping to summarize the info and problems from my search as well as get some more info.

    Thanks guys!

    that link doesn't work.

    There are many many threads discussing the various brands of preamps available via the search function. Here's the long and short of it: beyond a certain price point, they're all 'good' - it's a question of finding the one that suits your needs
