    yeah, so I sure did something to my M212. Haven't started taking it apart to isolate the issue, but I had the master up on one of my GK's and met with a good old vintage crackle in the pot as I adjusted the gain.

    That nice smell of magic smoke started coming off the cab a minute or two later... checked a few days later with another amp. Same thing. Something is fricaseed.

    I bought it used for peanuts, so it's no great tragedy. Near as I can tell, there is none of that blown driver buzz-on-the-decay-of-the-note that I've heard with other drivers that are done. Hoping it's just the x-over, which I'd be happy bypassing; not a tweeter guy.

    But I wanted to see what people knew about the drivers before I get to tinkering, since it certainly could be them. Are they proprietary? Custom Eminences? Or off-the-shelf drivers?

    Yes, I know that I could ask the company, but I haven't been in a German class since I was zwolf jahre alt.

    it should be "zwรถlf"...not"zwolf":D.

    I'm sure they speak english.:)
  3. Contact Glenn at Austin bass traders... he's the man! And they are the only Tecamp warranty/repair guys in the US I think. Good luck!

    I wonder if you fried the crossover?

    I really think/hope it was the x-over. I mean, it was already damaged (maybe the knob was removed intentionally?) and it is a very complicated x-over.

    The cab is in well-used gigged-hard condition, though. And divers in old cabs are always suspect.

    Amazing cab, though.
