    Hi,

    A dude was going to set up my rig for me recently. I have an WT-800 with two Eden 210T cabs (with a '64 j-bass).

    He made a mistake and put the two cables from the amp into one cab, instead of putting one for each.

    I had some weird sounds when I played, but I thought the was the electricity in the house or something. Finally the amp broke down, and I looked in the back and saw what he had done.

    When I turned on my amp the day after, with the cabs hooked correctly, it worked just fine.

    Should I experience more trouble in the future after this happened?

    Sounds like you dodged a bullet when the amp shutdown before smoke appeared. The amp should be OK. You're very fortunate that your speaker survived. Moral: Never Trust a Dude.

    I think what was happening was juice from the amp was trying to go back into the amp through the speaker.

    KEEP THAT GUY AWAY FROM YOUR STUFF!!! :smug:

    It was "juice" ? What do you mean? The sounds I got? :)

    It works just fine now, I'm just afraid it breaks down in front of 700 ppl. But that won't happen I guess :p

    BTW, it's the first time in my life I've had a sound that I truly love. WT-800 + 2x 210T eden cabs + 1964 Jazzbass = KILLER!

    :bassist:

    Thanks for answering guys!

    greetings from norway,
