You are ultimately limited by the available power of the internal amp. You can set controls for bass boost and turn off the treble but there is only so much power available.

HINT: If you are using speakers smaller than 15 inch, that will limit the bass as well. Use larger efficient speakers.

I have a gallien kreuger backline 600 bass amp head . and I'm wondering how to use the effects loop send and return jacks with a pedal or processor ?


Run a cable from the Send to the effects and a cable from the effects to the Return. This would be in place of running a cable from the bass guitar to the effects to the amp input.

Trying to connect peavey tour 700 to a trace elliot 1518 bass enclosure. Plug the enclosure to the back of the amp. Then plugged my bass into the high gain. Turned it on and nothing happens.


Check continuity on all cables, try a different cabinet with the head and a different head with the cabinet and the bass with a different rig to see which part of the chain isn't working, make sure the volume controls are turned up on both the amp and bass. Once the problem is narrowed down it will be easier to advise you.

Relay?? I've never seen a guitar or bass amp with "speaker protection relays"...usually they're either on or off. Check the simple stuff 1st...is speaker cable from head to cabinet and/or the input cable from bass to the amp good? Check the "Direct Out" for a line level signal (must be connected to a PA or other amplifier) as this is your preamp out signal. Also, plug a shielded cable from "Effects Send" to "Effects Return"...this will verify "effects" loop issues if any. Lastly, vibration test...use a clenched fist across the top, sides and bottom of wood cabinet to lightly "jar" the internal circuits. If it starts working even for an instant, I would suspect intermittent connection inside.

My 200hd head is not putting out the full 200 watts i have a behringer 8x10 cab and before this head used to power this cab fine now even with the volume cranked you cant even feel the bass i have...


I am not sure how you are measuring the power output to verify it is less than 200 watts. With a true RMS voltmeter you should see 28.28 volts RMS across a net speaker load of 4 ohms. If you use only one 8 ohm speaker, you will get 120 watts. If you are getting the 28 volts there is nothing wrong with the amp. You MAY have blown the speakers OR not generating much bass due to processing in an EQ. I assume you are using at least 15 inch speakers if you want to feel bass. Look up your speakers specs... you will need speakers capable of 32 Hz to feel much. With this amp your speakers should have aa total rating not less than 400 to 600 peak watts or around 300 watts RMS continuous power rating. Using a lot of high end EQ will keep the amp busy at the high end and reduce the power available at the bass end.

This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?


Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

Hartke Ha2500 250watt Bass Amplifier Head sound cuts off(not turns off)after a little while comes back on


This sounds like the thermal protection is activating. Make sure the vents and heatsinks have FREE AIRFLOW. If the sound cycles on and off, it could be a failure of the heater in the one vacuum tube in the unit. The heater could cooll and reconnect and then heat and disconnect.
