Hi,
I will try to find out, but I'm on holiday at the moment.
Unpaid moderators get holidays?  Shocking!   ;)

Your efforts are appreciated here, Armin.  Cheers, Bob  ;D

Eden General / Re: WT800 Help
« Last post by Rip Van Dan on April 22, 2017, 05:21:53 PM »
OK, it used to be that we would say that was a WT800A series which seriously could NOT go down to 4 ohm bridged and that part is still true.  Then along came the WT800B and WT800C and those would go down to 2  ohms per channel and 4 ohms bridged.

HOWEVER, after Marshall bought Eden and reviewed the amps they were not comfortable with the WT800B and C being run bridged at a 4 ohm load, even though the WT800 had been running bridged at 4 ohms since sometime in 2005.  Marshall bought Eden in December of 2011 and during 2012 the WT800C started showing up once again with the text "Bridged Output only - 8 ohm minimum" next to the bridged output instead of the previous "4 ohm minimum". 

If your WT800C doesn't have the backlit logo and the speakon speaker outputs on the back (as opposed to the banana connectors of previous WT800's), then 800-watts at 8 ohms is the limit for running bridged.  Personally, I wouldn't try pushing it to 4 ohms bridged if it doesn't have the porchlight.  If it's got the porchlight, I would run it at 4 ohms bridged in a minute.  Marshall didn't change the WT800C at all, just changed the text at the bridged output.

I actually checked my manuals and the WT800B, which was the first WT800 to safely run at 4 ohms bridged and 2 ohms per channel, is dated July 15, 2005.  The 2005 catalog features the WT800A series, there was no catalog in 2006, and the 2007 catalog features the WT800C.  So the "B" version "probably" hit the stores in late 2005 or early 2006.

Another difference you can check that ONLY the WT800C had was a "mute to tune", which disconnected all outputs except the tuner output.  You would engage the mute on that by "gently pulling the Input Gain Knob out.  If yours does that, then it is a WT800C.  Unfortunately I don't have a date on that Addendum so I don't know exactly when it was published.

Thank you for the link to Digikey, who I ordered the new power switch from. Unfortunately, this switch is a 3 connector switch. The WTX 260 switch is 4 connector - 2 white, a red and a black wire. Any thoughts on this? I'm sure Digikey has this part, I just have no idea what is is called. THANKS! I really love this amp, and I want to avoid a service call that will be maybe 50% of its cost. You know the story...  :)

I think the minimum is five so it should be possible to message - but whether someone still has the same contact details???  Good luck...

Hi alotabass, there's no chance the people who posted in this thread years ago will see your requests.  You can try sending them a private message but there is a minimum number of posts you need to be able to do that as a new member (to prevent spamming; believe me we've seen a lot of it).  I don't know how many posts it takes but you can go to the "testing" folder and have fun posting nonsense until the system allows you to send a PM.  Good luck, Bob

I thought they were, I put in the Dropbox public links it gave me.  Isn't that all there is to it?  Like I said, not that good anyway, not enough light.  Edit: tried it again, no luck.

Heh, I don't care how many pixels it has, if the lens is the size of a SenSen it can't be gathering that much light!
