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.

Fishman Loudbox amplifier rattle sound on bass notes


Either the speakers have loosened from the faceplate, or one or more have blown. Open the amp and tighten them down. If that doesn't fix it, remove them a take them to the nearest speaker repair shop for a checkup. If blown either have them re-coned or replace them.

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.

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.

Amp pops randomly and gets worse with my remote bass knob hooked up any ideas ?


When you say that the amp "pops" are you referring to the sound that is coming out of the speakers?
This is most likely the speakers "bottoming out", i.e. moving as much as they can, and then slapping against the back of the speaker frame. Adding the remote bass knob (presumably increasing the signal to the amplifier) would make the problem a bit worse, which explains why the popping increases after you add the bass knob.

You can try decreasing the gain on your amplifier and running the system at a moderate volume. If there's no popping occurring, you can be reasonably sure that the subs/speakers are just being over-driven.

Bad hum or buzz from guitar when it is plugged in.


the input jack is probably grounding or has a bad ground. it probably has a bad solder joint on the jack to the circuit board. if you can open it up gently look at the pins of the jack to the pcb. make sure the battery is disconnected! dont want to short anything out. it may be hard to see, but you can push on the jack and see if the legs/pins move, etc. humming and buzzing sounds usually are a bad ground. especially on a unit this small.

1995 Toyota Avalon Right Rear Speaker Problems


Hello gecpimp,

It certainly sounds like the speaker has failed. Most OEM speakers have paper cones and cloth surrounds and it is not uncommon for the adhesive to give out in the vehicle environment.

The Avalon uses the "workhorse" of car audio speakers. Both front and rear are 5-1/4" and you can get great aftermarket speakers in that size. Unfortunately, no 5-1/4 speaker is really good at reproducing bass. A really good set of Focal full-range speakers, the Polyglass 130 CVX runs $300 at www.crutchfield.com. Somewhat less expensive are the JL Audio C2-525X at $180. Speakers such as these will give you the best sound. Somewhat less expensive are Alpine and Infinity, but they're still good. It would probably be a good idea while you have the door panels off, to go ahead and replace the fronts at the same time.

Hope this helps.

Buzzing sound coming out of back speakers


Make/model of receiver or amplifier?

Type of speakers -

The buzzing is a 60 hertz ground loop - most likely.

Make sure all connections are properly grounded and that all connections are firmly in place. Assure that wires are connected correctly. If necessary, trace each wire to assure proper connection.

Older phonographs have ground connections. Most receivers have a ground lug nut connection.

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.

Buzzing bass Amp combo


The problem you have mentioned is a common one with old sets, but it also occurs in new ones also, though not frequent. You can fix this just by changing the electrolytic filter capacitors in the power supply and sub filters on the amp PCB. The new capacitors should be of the same or higher voltage rating and same capacity rating as of the existing ones. And as it is such an old one, it is better to change all the electrolytic capacitors to avoid any further problems.
