I was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem I've been having with my line 6 Spider II combo. For some reason the volume keeps dropping drastically and randomly. I've only heard it do it on the clean channels but my other guitar player says that when he jams on it it does it on the distortion as well. Is this fixable? It just sounds to me like it's not something too hard to fix, could this just be simply a lose speaker wire?

Sorry if my questions sounds stupid but I honestly don't know **** about repairing amps and I dont want to tinker around not knowing what I'm doing.

May I ask why you've owned 3 Line6 amps and ended up with a Frontman?

It sounds like it could be a bad cable. But seriously, get a new amp. You won't regret it.

It's probably something impossible to fix, and if it is it will cost probbly more the the amp is worth to repair something that's not even that good in the first place

Spiders are known for this kind of problem. Theres probably not a whole lot your gonna be able to do with it. Its time to save some money for another amp.

Spiders aren't reliable at all, it probably isn't fixable. You should start saving for a new amp.

You should dry it very well.This is known issue with Line 6 Spider and Flextone amps.They must be always on very dry places or they will start working as you describes or changing alone between amps.With Behringer amps, you will not have such as problems.

Bullshit.
Behringers actually catch fire while being used. Not only that, they're also a company that's a bit shady. Peak wattage is what they show on their amps, not RMS.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
