Question about Crate SPA1600 Power Amplifier - SPA Series Car Audio Amplifier
My Crate BT50 cuts out when I add distortion or drive it over a certain level, any ideas?
Sometimes an amplifier's preamp can't handle certain signals/frequencies at a high gain, so they cut out. Bass guitars are especially prone to giving such a strong signal.
I bought an older, nonworking bass amp recently and fixed it just to find it had the same problem. Best solution is to put a low ohm resistor at the amps input, but if you turn your guitar down to half volume it'll have the same effect: should prevent it from cutting out.
