So whenever i turn my amp up to band practicing volumes, i get ridiculous amounts of crappy bass sound like the speakers are overloading or something.

would an EQ solve this? if so any recommendations?

try lowering the bass?
maybe you've blown the speaker?

If its a speaker you can easily replace it your self, they just bolt in. So your cost would be the cost of the speaker of your choice. Get someone to look at it though because diagnosing amp problems over the internet is only useful to point you in a direction to check yourself.

IF its a speaker problem get a Celestion speaker. Well that might be to expensive so find a speaker and your guitar shop that fits your needs.

Yeah it sounds like whats happening to you is exactly what happens wen a speaker blows.
The EQ wont fix, u WILL need to get a new speaker.
if u know anyone who has a good speaker that will fit,
invite them over for a jam and a slumber party, and while they are sleeping,
carefully switch the speakers.

yea well, u try come up with an easier and cheaper way of doing it!!!!!

what about sodering? (spelling?) Don't you have to do that to put in the new speaker? And wont that make alot of noise?

could be a speaker problem, or your amp is clipping when you practice. i've had that happen with my little 30watt crate ss amp.

ha, well how loud do you play your amp? and if you use the muff, it may not help the situation.

when you turn your amp up too far, since it is solid state, the powersection is bound to overload with electricity, and cause your signal to 'clip' harshly (looking at sine waves would help). when that happens, your tone gets muddy, and i'm sure the bass goes out of whack and sounds "flubby." that's how it was with my little amp at practices.

with tube amps, when the signal overloads the tubes, the 'clip' is a lot smoother and the wave is rounded, which in turn sounds much more pleasing to the ear.

keep in mind, it may be a speaker problem still.

if you push an amp's power section enough, it's inevitable. unless the amp is made to not do so, which i've never heard of.

if you play loud, maybe you'd be able to use a tube amp's potential to work for you. i'm not sure if you're in the position to buy a new amp though.

although i now got a vendetta against randall is their rg50tc worth the money? i'm looking at a tube amp i can use with distortion pedals to make a decent amp for practice and so on, god bless.
