Question about Mesa Boogie Mesa/Boogie 2x10 Vintage PowerHouse Bass Speaker Cabinet

1 Answer

I have static in my 8/10 mesa cabinet. Its only in the second bank of speakers. The speakers seem to work and sound as good as the others in the cabinet but there is a weird light static sound that comes out when I play a note. It isn't very loud but definitely noticible.

Sometimes there is a resonance with materials that are a part of the case or inside the cabinet that cause this. If the level is very low, don''t worry about it. I have even seen the logo on a speaker grill causing the noise... also debris inside or behind the grille...

Woofer rattles at low volume...when i turn it up it sounds pretty good...still has bass and highs


May be a couple of things; The first is a resonance in the cabinet, which may not be noticeable at high volumes. If the speaker cabinet was ever dropped,or got cracked from dropping , dry weather,or whatever, there may be certain frequencies that make the cabinet rattle. Try holding the cabinet when it rattles and look for anything loose,from a side wall to a loose foot, or the speaker itself. Tighten up loose items and seal any gaps or cracks On the cabinet.
The other problem could be a partially blown speaker. Test by lightly pushing in on the outsides of the speaker to see if it moves in and out freely. If there is a scratching sound, or it drags slightly , it might be blown. Also,the dust cap or another part of the speaker may be loose. Check that, and reseal if loose. Replace or have reconed if blown.

Amp goes to half power? Even after tube replacement.


How do you know it is going half power? did you measure this, or do you only hear half the power? because then also a speaker (or more) could be not working.

I have a budda superdrive 30 II amp and have a setting question. I made a 2-12 cabinet to hook to this amp. Each speaker is 4 ohms. They are wired to their own output jack. My amp has 2 outputs for...


You best rewire the cabinet to put the two speakers in series. Wire one speaker plus to minus of the other and bring the other lead, one from each speaker to your jack on the cabinet. The amp output impedance is what is set on the switch... for two 8 ohm speakers you would use both jacks to the two speakers BUT ssince you have 4 ohm speakers the ONLY option is for two in series and set the switch to 8 ohms. The amp is ONLY 30 Watts so don't expect too much sound output... You should get a nice CLEAN sound at a reasonable level. If you drive the amp too hard it will clip and you will get garbage.

I touched my speaker and felt a static electric shock, the unit powered down, although it powers up, I hear the cooling fan but no sound or front power LED now. what happened and how do I fix it?


Did you have this speaker AND the device that drives it connected to the same power source? If run by a mixer you MUST run a power extension from the same place your powered speakers are powered to the mixer. Ground bounce due to wiring in a building can destroy input circuits due to ground faults and static discharges. ALWAYS use balanced lines either XLR or TRS cables to interconnect the audio.

Also verify your power receptacle is properly wired. Carry one of those plugs with the indicators showing receptacle is wired correctly. Don't plug anything in until you verify it. Some venues are noted as having bad electical service.

Let your speaker sit for a minute and repower it... sometimes they have a lockout that takes time to reset.

When i power up my line 6 spider 3 ( i think it has two 75 watt speakers) all the lights work but no sound at all no static or speaker sound even at full volume. cable checks out, but even with a bad cable...


A pilot light means almost nothing other than the power cord is plugged in and hot and the switch is on. In this case, other lights run from various DC supplies so the inout fuse is presumed to be good... NEVER replace a fuse without knowing what caused it to blow or you will usually do more damage within a unit. There are several power supplies and you will typiclly find +/-15 volts on the op amps and 3.3 volts on the processor logic. Unless something simple like the speaker cable falling off this will NOT be a DIY repair. I would look to see if this speaker cable might have fallen off and ALSO check if you get any sound using headphones.

I have a behringer pmp 3000. In the middle of the show, one of our inputs started making a loud static sound. stopped and turned it off then on. Checked the cable and not that, it still looked like it...


Take this in for WARRANTY repair immediately !!!! This is NOT DIY.

Always power any interconnected equipment from the same receptacle or power distribution box.

I've got a Behringer Ultrabass Bb410 1200w 4x10 Bass Cabinet in which 2 of the speakers rattle. I know the speakers have been removed and rewired. How can I get an internal wiring diagram to check...


The cabinet is listed as a 4 ohm unit.

We would exoect to see four, 4 ohm speakers in series parallel or four 16 ohm speakers in parallel.

If teh unit seems to rattle, first put an audio oscillator into it and sweep the frequency. It is common for grilles and also logos attached to them to rattle.

Open the unit and power each speaker the same way individually for a test.

I suspect you will find either the grille or mounting hardware is actually doing the rattling OR possibly the wires inside are vibrating.

If the sound is a scratchy buzz, then the speaker(s) have probably had voicecoils damaged by overheating.

In this case, buy 4 new speakers and replace all. It is not likely to find replacements for the Buggera brand they put in these cabinets. Also the word on the web about that brand of speaker is not very good.

Can you directly hook a sr16 to a peavey bass speaker cabinet using the output mono on the sr16 to send or retrn on the cabinet?


You can, however a bass speaker cabinet will NOT handle the higher pitch sounds needed for cymbals and snares, etc. You would connect it to the return AND doing so would DISABLE the other inputs of the bass speaker cabinet.

If you want both a guitar and drum machine into the cabinet, you need at least a small mixer or a speaker cabinet that can take two channels input simultaneously.

Plugging into the "return" of the cabinet DISCONNECTS the power amp from the preamp section in the cabinet.

Roland keyboard. Extremely static-y speakers. Cuts out.


It sounds like your volume slider is dirty. Try carefully and judiciously spraying a good quality contact cleaner into the slider and working it. do not use a lot. It only takes a little. Also do not use WD40.
