Eden General / Replace Jacks on WT1205?
« Last post by fretless62 on December 16, 2017, 11:29:39 PM »
I have an old WT1205. Five of the jacks (L and R 1/4" amp outs, L and R 1/4" speaker outs, and the headphone out) sheared off - the exterior nut portions cracked and they fell off. This is my fault as I don't always put the back of the rack on and those jacks rub up against the carpet in the trunk of my car or the tied up power cord.  Anyway, the amp otherwise works great, Speakon outs and all other jacks are fine.

Is it worth trying to fix these myself? It looks like the jacks are mounted directly on green PCB boards and this may be above my technical expertise to fix. If it was just a matter of ordering jacks and doing some light soldering I might give it a go, but if it requires that I order the parts with the PCBs then I'd let someone else do it. I don't want to spend a lot of money as the cost of fixing might go over the amp's overall value and I may be looking to sell this at somoe point as it's no longer my main gigging amp. Any advice? Know of any good amp techs in Southern California?

*checks the back of WT-550 to see what year it was made.*

Simple advice for the output, just let your ears be the judge :D

I don't really have access or the know how for that.. but I guess I'll look into it. Although I really don't think it's the preamp, as I said before, it seems to be power related

Why all of the right ones of course. Typically using 150-lashes as the primary cleaner.  I couldn't get you any details on cleaning outputs as those comments are not really appropriate for polite company.  Nonetheless everything appears to be working fine down here even though I am having a tough time wrapping my mind around my upside down position compared to my normal place of residence.  I don't feel like I'm standing on my head.  I wonder, if I fall over down here, will I be falling up?... ??? ??? ;)

Yes it handles 2 ohms all night, no problem.  David Nordschow (the designer) said he thought it sounded better at either 4 or 8 ohms but was built to run at 2 ohms and will handle that all night  without a problem.  it was rated for a 2 ohm minimum load from the time it came out in 2003 until about a year or so after Marshall bought Eden.  Nothing changed about it but Marshall "didn't feel comfortable" rating it at 2 ohms even though lots of folks had run it at 2 ohms the previous 9-years. 

So yeah, run it at 2 ohms mate and get either 620 watts out of it (2003 and 2004 models) or 750 watts out if it (2005 and later).   I have a pdf of the manual from 2003 (not the info-scarce one that Marshall put out in 2012) and if you send me your e-mail I can e-mail it to you.  It quotes the 620 RMS Watts at 2 ohms because it's manual from 2003.  Again, 2005 and later WT550's handled 750 watts @ 2 ohms.

Hi Dan,
I think it is not your fault.
I am traveling a lot and most of the time in a different location and time zone.
That never effected the Forum counts accept my own.
I guess it is more a sign of how reliable Eden is.
Meanwhile you should try and clean all your jacks with Forsters Deoxit and enjoy the hell out of your trip, mate!

LOL!  Actually, I have been using some Cooper's sparkling Ale and some James Squire 150-lashes Pale Ale for cleaning purposes.  Sound levels have increased accordingly... ;D 8)
