I've been playing bass for over 25 years, so I like to think I kind of know what I'm doing. I am baffled at this one. Last year I had a speaker tear in my Harke 410XL. I liked the cabinet, it served me well, so I fixed it and bought a Hartke HyDrive 410. Saturday The same exact thing happened to the same exact speaker (location) in the Hydrive. I'm using a SansAmp RBI into a Crown XLS1000. I run the Crown wide open, cause it's an amp, and the SansAmp at about 11:00 with everything flat and no distortion or presence, blend at about 60% or more. I sometimes use my ancient Avatar 212 neo with the same amp. In fact, the Avatar has seen more gig time than both Hartkes combined. We can actually talk above our stage volume, we have a large pa and everything goes through it. I also use a Wampler Ego Compressor and a Micro Thumpinator. We are not a loud band, which actually gets us a lot of gigs, but that's another topic. Thoughts?
