Eden WT 550 EQ Light
« on: December 26, 2018, 06:48:55 PM »
I just purchased a used WT 550.  It was working and sounding great.  Then the EQ Clip light came on and stayed on.  It comes on each time I turn the amp on and stays on no matter what I do to the controls.   There is zero output and a humming sound coming from the speaker. 
Wondering if anyone out there can help me get a handle on  what is going on with this amp.

Sorry about that.  The WT550 is a workhorse of an amp.


What speakers did you have connected, and how did you connect them?  What mode (stereo, bridged) were you running in?

I have it hooked up to a Markbass 15 inch traveler speaker with a cable with speakon connectors.

I'm running in mono mode.  I think it's the only way the amp runs.

Hi Photorick and welcome to the Garden!

sounds like a problem with your preamp board. Tech time for you.

Mono mode. You're correct. I was thinking of it's big brother, the WT800.  :-[

I tried changing the tube but no change.  I will bring to my local tech at Motor City Guitar tomorrow.  Thanks for all the input.
