The most reasonable place for a new speaker is Seismic Audio https://www.seismicaudiospeakers.com. If you don't care for that, look for an Eminence Delta series. You'll need to check your amp for what ohm speaker you need.

Crate bx-100 bass amp powers up but no sound


I recommend to check your speaker with something else before anything else. Sometimes they rattle when the voice coil gets hot and warps but, sometimes the blow out completely and make no sound at all.

It is likely that there is a failure of one of the amps in the unit. It could be a cracked circuit board, bad solder, bad volume control, or a bad compnent in the power amp section for one side. HOWEVER something does NOT compute here as you can't connect more than one speaker to a 15 Watt Crate amp... Maybe you have two of these amps.

I have a Crate PA-8 4 ohm 150 watt PA head that I run to four Peavy 10" PA speakers (two per side in series). It was very good, clean sound, but the speakers were cheap and may have been pushed too hard -...


150 watts should be easily handled by four Peavey speakers in the connection you described.. If the Peavey's are 8 ohms, then your total load was 8 ohms for the series/parallel arrangement which is well within the 2 ohm drive capability of the Crate according to specs.

I question if you really mean the speakers were in series? This requires a special cable to do this. Now if you mean they were "daisy chained" like the amp went to one speaker and another cable connected that speaker to another, then you REALLY had ALL speakers in parallel electrically which would be at the 2 ohm low limit of the amp... In either case, with only 1/4 of the 150 Watts to each, the speakers should NOT have been damaged. The amp MAY have been damaged. Try each speaker individually at a REASONABLE level to test.

If you plug into the effects loop out jack,OFTEN the connection to the internal power amp is broken so you might have to arrange a special cable as a wye to go back into the power amp as well as your external amp. In any case pwere ALL interconnected amps, etc from the same power source/receptacle for system safety.

I can't be sure for the result at your area, but I have to tell you that whenever I rebuild speakers at technicians in Greece (that's my country), the results were not very good. They always worked but after some working period started to make strange noices. Especially if you are a mucisian and the amplifier is yourself, replace them.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Crate Bass Amp B100 - No sound.


Do you happen to have another speaker that you could hook up to speaker output? This would bypass the amps internal speaker and lf you get sound from that setup, it would mean either a jack failure or possible internal speaker problems. Please let me know.

I have a Crate GT 15, not getting anything to the speaker when I plug in.


Do you have electronics experience? Inspect the amp for broken or cold solder joints and any burned components. Check to see if the fuse blew and that the output IC's or transistors (not sure what Crate used in these) are not bad. Check your speaker wire as well.

Crate bass amp bt220 limit led is flashing with the volume only at half


You can reach the limiting IRRESPECTIVE of where the volume control is set when you have a guitar or other source that has HIGH output.

Guitars that have battery in them with internal amplifiers are an example of a high output guitar. Plain inductive pickups may require the volume control to be set at say 70% to reach limiting.

Please NOTE that the volume control is NOT linear, but is an "audio taper".

Limiting means you are probably driving it too hard. Many learn the hard way when speakers and thee power amp fail.

When the cone is driven too far beyond the pole pieces of the magnet, then the IMPEDANCE of the speaker becomes relatively low and can damage the power amp. The limiter tries to prevent this by sensing the current and or voltage and will back off the gain internally. This causes distortion when it happens.
