Question about Marshall Amplification Marshall AS100D 2x8 Acoustic Combo Amp

1 Answer

Distorted speaker sound - only 18 months old not played at volume - is it likely to be the speaker or electronic ? Is this a common fault - will it happen again making this amp unreliable ? Not as noticable at low volume.

    I have the same exact problem,I have it with the guitar I find the notes distort on the end of the sound,if that makes sense?I turned its one day and it made a very strange sound as if one of the valves was going,I hear it has some valves.Also the potts on the volume and other knobs are scratchy when turned.Mines only 18 months or so too.

This is a electronic problem. there must be a capacitor/s in the output section that's swollen and will keep giving the same problem unless its replaced.

Marshall MB4410, with low volume gives no real volume,


Guitar amps have preamp sections (think unpowered audio mixer) and power amp sections (Crown rack-mount amp). An excellent way to isolate audio problems if amp is still producing audio is to check the preamp out (line out). Preamp output distorted = preamp failure. Connect MP3 player to "Power Amp In"...sound distorted = power amp failure. In your case the latter is the case as your "line out" is clean. Also test each speaker for clear sound as speaker cone damage from being overpowered is fairly common. At 300w. I'll assume the failure was not from cranking the volume to loud but a shorted speaker or speaker wiring could zap the power amp in an instant.

Peavey speakers making no sound


Try connecting them to another amplifier...you can use the speaker output of a guitar amp as a quick test. If the amp (and mixer) check OK, it sounds like you are about to become good friends with your local speaker reconing shop.

Remember...Distorted Audio Can Kill Speakers even at low volumes. It happens because sine waves become square waves. Google it for additional information.

Distortion troubles with numark ndx400's


The bad news is it could be any of them. or it could be the lighting- CFL's and regular flourescent lighting are bad for audio, as are switching supplies used in TV's, microwave ovens and some musical gear. They are worse than lighting dimmers for noise.

The thing to do is start at the speaker itself and work through the chain of devices to find the one distorting. An old transistor radio is useful here. Most actually do have enough power to faintly drive a large speaker- listen for scraping and rattling- it would mean the voice coil windings may have come loose or the coil form is damaged from heat.

Move back to the amp input and try again- this time listen for a clipped sound if the speaker checked out okay. It would sound like the Charlie Brown adults in the cartoons. That would be a failure of an active component in the amp. If you now hear rattling or scraping- the speaker voice coil is bad and should be repaired or replaced.

If it sounds good, move back to each deck. apply your radio- volume turned down to an input it one is provided. Each should sound clean like the amp did. If no sound or distorted sound is found here- which is the most probable location, it is likely one of the IC chips is at fault. Likely a 4558 if an IC fault, otherwise suspect dirt or hair on the encoder connected to the spin platters.

Try using your guitar cord to plug in and out of the headphone jack several times while unit is on. There is a circuit that disconnects the speaker when using headphones and the circuit is activated when something is plugged into the headphone jack. This "switch" can get dirty and cause the can get dirty and cause the problem you describe.

You may have damaged the variable resistors (the volume controls), you can purchase replacements from a local Electronics store (if UK based try Tandy). Otherwise have you checked the speaker itself for damage? You may have split the speaker which will need to be replaced.

Have you checked that it is not the amp that is the problem? This is a fairly common thing to have the amp heat up and the thermal protection shut it down partly. Since the bass drops, a loose connection or bad guitar cable can cause that. If the signal becomes capacitively coupled only the treble will come through and be very distorted. Try a new cable. For the guitar, open the electronics area and look for loose or broken wire.

Peavey amp shut down


The output stage has a problem. From your description, I'd guess that the high voltage supply has failed. The low volume and distortion suggests that you are trying to power the speakers from the driver section rather than the outputs. There is a resistor that fails in some of this series. If I remember correctly it is either a 2K or 3K resistor 10 watts in size. If you have no experience with repairs, I'd seek a service shop that is familiar with these units. The part runs between $5-$10.

It unfortunately sounds like a blown speaker. Try getting at the speaker and gently moving the cone with your fingers. If you feel a rubbing sensation you will most likely have to consider a new speaker. Make sure you get one with the same impedance (ohms) and the same or better power handling.
