Crate BX 160 bass amp. Has intermittent problems and shuts down

Amp shuts down when the limiter in the amp starts to clip the signal amplification. Amp shuts completely down signal wise for about 30 seconds before reactivating. It does not take much signal to get the amp to start clipping.

Check your speakers cables for good condition-no touching between inner wires of each other- after you confirm from good cables condition- try the speakers one by one-make good ventilation around the amp and clean it with air blower-after that if the problem still found contact near service center for help.

I use the crown xti 6000 for 2 double 18s pd186 for bass per channel


Send a signal from the mixer to the amp directly, seems as if you have a distorted signal from your crossover

Carlsbro Bass Reactor 400 bass amp - power section dead


• Could be drive transistor , output transistor or both on the main amp.

But check for power supply and in the preamps also.

• A signal tracer will come in handy when troubleshooting these kind

of symptoms.

• Measure supply voltages,

• Check offset voltage

• Check idling current

Isolate , and trace afterwards.


• Schematic is really needed when there are burnt and unrecognizable

component. But one can use similar schematics to analyze circuit

problem.

Ics volum problem Amplifier


Fault is not clear , if you meant there is no volume then the amplification of the different stages must be checked using a audio signal generator to confirm the stages and drop of volume.can be related to the AF pre-amp stage.Check for dry solder joints.

I have a GK Backline 600 bass amp with an intermittent pre amp problem. Sometimes it works fine then starts distorting. One odd thing i've noticed when I shut it down, about 7 seconds later the clip light...


This is not a problem with dirty components. There is a semiconductor inside that is sensitive to heat and is failing. This unit should be taken to a service shop before complete failure. It has the potential for frying the output section depending upon the part that fails.

Please seek professional assistance with this repair.

What is causing my EP4000 to start clipping after 2hr and have my highs to go out what am i doing wrong? I have changed cables and have had the same problem


You're amp is probably approaching thermal mode which causes the amp to overheat and eventually shut down or if it has a limiter built in this is due to distortion. You must lower your output volume.

Behringer amp


Hello pare ko.
EP2500 is a pro amp, manufacturer says that. Notorious to me.
Got 5 of these for repair. Clip is of course cause by too much
signal from source. If the amp is still clipped or on protect even w/out
signal in, time to open and do repairs inside. usually a MOSFET
inside P50N06 (50V-60A) is kaput. or MJE15033G and MJE15032G.
Now if blowing main Fuse, main txistor 2SA1943/2SC5200 maybe gone.
Read carefully the setting of your dip switches setting at the back.
This amp can drive 750 watts/ch@4 ohms.

Good Luck From Siliconchip

Gem sound xp-350 clipping


Hi There,

You have given me a good clue to your problem....

You say that the CD player goes well and does not shut the system down like the Live connections. This is a single input configuration...

This means that there is sound levels coming in from the live multiple connections that are too strong (Loud) for the amp to handle...
Its a good amp you have as its shutting down to protect itself instead of blowing up....
So.... set up for the live show then disconnect all but one of the live inputs and start the live session if its OK, then connect another of the live connections, and see if its OK, if it is then connect another live one connecting each one progressively until the problem occurs again...this last live connection is the one that is too loud in signal strength for the amp to handle causing the shut down...

Solution is to reduce tha signal on that last cable source to a level that stops the shut down...I remember that groups of guitar players have volume controls on each guitar and if these are set too high then this can occur....specially if they are all using the same amp without a controlled "mixer man" monitoring each input signal.
Rember the small meters on the mixing panel which have a green painted area and a red painted area the "mixer man" must keep the each meter needle in the green zone for all the inputs otherwise a shut down occurs.
Hope this helps you...

Cheers From
YUBEUT
