Hey everybody,
So here's the deal; I have a Orange Crush 20 watt ldx that I just blew. I had been playing for about 2 and a half hours, and I had it cranked up pretty loud, and the sound just gave out. The lights and everything still turn on, and there was no smell or smoke. I am an amp novice and I have a bunch of questions:
1. Why did my amp die?
2. Is it fixable? and if so, how would I go about doing so?
3. What should I look for in a new amp to avoid this in the future. (Watts...etc)
4. New amp recommendations
5. Anything else I should know about amplifiers.
Any and all info is greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
Blown fuse, blown amp, or blown speaker? Try plugging in a different speaker and see if she works. Check online for a schematic and see if there is an internal fuse blown. Process of elimination.
