I would love this post to be about how good the Yamaha B100 is. I truly would.
However. It seems like it doesn't work. Maybe it worked when I received it, and I fucked it up.
First, basic info about myself:
1) I think
I am a decent DIYer and an alright solderer
2) I absolutely suck
att doing things with my hands. And my soldering skills are terrible.
The 1x15 cab I bought yesterday did not have any speaker ins, and it soldering some small cable ends to a jack is easy as pie. However, I decided to use the full length of the BIG ASS speaker wire and add a 1/4 male connector. I bought som connectors and started soldering it up, and let me tell you, this was some picky shit. The speaker wire was enormous, and the jack were to small for the cable. I know i probably shouldn't have forced it, but I did. The first time some sound came out of the speaker from the head, but the volume was very low and after 30 secs it died out. I opened the connector and found that the hot wires connection had broken. After quite some time I soldered a jack to the speaker successfully. It works with other amps but not with the new one. I'm guessing I fucked the amp up. I just wonder now what to do. Does anyone know if this is an easy/inexpensive fix? I don't think I'm gonna trust my DIY skills unless it's super easy.
Some other info:
The cab is tested for 8 ohms.
The outputs on the amp says: 1 or 2 = 4 to 8 ohms, 1 + 2 = 8 to 16 ohms.
Atleast it looks good
