First check all of the ground connections both at the amp and bass. If the amp makes the buzzing with no input at all, the problem is most likely a bad cap in the front end of the amp. These are not the easiest to work on. I would suggest that you bring the amp to a servicer for repair. Anything that you can describe that indicates when the buzzing is more evident would be helpful in tracking down the problem.

Hi, avatar6.jpgbudfaulkner7

The 130 special was released as a Combo Amp, though I have seen quite a few taken out of the original cabinet and used in a rack system. Mine had a single 12" Scorpion speaker, I think a revised model came out in 86 (in Canada at least) that had twin 10" black widows.

The receiver must KNOW it has a sub and you must decide how bass is managed among all your speakers and set up relative levels.

Can a car amp be hooked up to this recevier for more bass power


Amps don't 'make' bass. They amplify what comes into them as accurately as possible. Your source makes the bass and speakers recreate it to varying degrees of fidelity.

You might add a powered subwoofer to your speaker complement if you don't already have one.

Automotive audio is highly over-rated as far as performance specs are concerned. They basically get away with lying about everything because there doesn't seem to be a standard by which they are judged as home audio is.

What car amp are you contemplating and what speakers would it push?

Keep blowing out bass on speakers Denon 75rd


Thank you for responding. I called in an audio specialist to look at the whole system--he believes there is a problem with the amplifier. Will post what he finds out when he looks inside.

Is denon 1356 with active bass. and i want to know the difference between active bass and passive bass.


Hi....

A passive bass is a box with a sub-woofer in it.
An active bass is a box like that with an amplifier built in.

Hope that helps.

Mains fuse blows immediatly on power up on trace elliot commando 100W bass amplifier


Hi, The most common cause of this is blown output transistors, assuming this is not a valve amp. 
At any rate, this is something you will want to have looked at by a tech.
