Try using a short patch cord from the effects send jack to the effects return jack. There are contacts in the effects return jack that interrupt the signal to the power amp. When that connection corrodes it can cause all kinds of strange troubles.

Crackling from bass combo when I hit low notes


I'm afraid it sounds as though the speaker has been overloaded. The replacement for this will, unfortunately, be a new driver (the speaker unit itself).

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.

No sound to remote speakers in dining & deck areas.


Incoming from WHAT? Ampifiers accept inputs via RCA connections and send amplified audio to the speakers via the + and - OUTPUT terminals.

I'm guessing your colored wires are from your speakers and that there is a piece of this puzzle we do not see - how the speakers on the deck and in the dining area are wired.

You say, "was working ok previously"... previous to WHAT? Something changed.

You can probably troubleshoot and resolve this yourself.

Set the amp to a medium output level.

If the wires are simply leading to either or both pairs of speakers you could select any two of them and connect them to one side of the amp. Only a pair going to the same speaker(s) will produce sound. Once you identify one pair, the other pair probably goes to the other speakers. Connect them to the other channel output.

The last piece would be to establish correct phasing between the speakers. Bass response will suffer if they're not IN-phase. Play something with substantial bass. Listen closely, then reverse the wires on one side only. Test again. If it IMPROVES you have it right. If it losses bass, put the wires back the way they were.

GK 1001 rb speaker overload, is my guess


This problem is not likely to be a volume control problem. There is a transistor inside that is failing (getting noisy) when heated up. If you have no experience with amp repairs, do not attempt this as it is not simple to locate the defective part. Continued use in this condition can cause problems with the speakers. Please have this serviced by a repair shop with experience with GK gear.

Bass amp settings


For rock and slapping you are going to want to set the Bass and Treble controls high and the Mids low. For music such as Jazz you are going to want more mids so that your sound will be fatter. If there is a button marked "Mid-Scoop" you'll want that on when slapping.
