Hey i picked up this amp about 5 months ago and about a few weeks ago in order for me to play casually to myself the amp needs to be on 10. Tried different power chord, different guitar chord, different instrument. Is there a loose connection somewhere? i just want my baby to rumble

well if you're using a guitar on a bass amp then you might be killing the amp

Wow. Did you really just say that? You can't damage a bass amp by playing a guitar through it. In fact, there are some bass amps that are used more by guitar players than bass players, vintage Bassman amps being one of the most popular.

^^^shouldn't be an issue using guitar with bass amp anyway - it's the other way about that causes issues.
Look at the speaker is it moving properly? you can normally see bass speakers move.
Listen for any rattling while you play too that can be a sign of a loose speaker.

Did it 'ever' work properly? is this a recent problem? you checked batteries in all instruments? (i had the bad luck for 2 sets of actives to go on the same day once thought my amps were dead)
It may need a trip to a tech...

^ hey no hating (pretty ironic for the "rule nazi"), using bass' through guitar amps IS a serious issue which could have caused a problem, he just got them the wrong way about

Yes it did work properly, a fairly recent problem I dont hear any crackling or anything so im going to change battery in my bass and hope for the best. Dont really want to open the amp and go for a search

Opening amps is never recommended. Plus the chances are you won't be able to anything to an ss since they are printed boards.

Maybe your ears have just gone and you are in fact mightily pissing off your neighbours?
