hi ,
 Yes, probably the power supply side of the amp. Strange that the fuse didn't blow and the amp still turns on . I saw some info about diodes and/or power resistors causing the clip light to stay on. I have experience poking around with a multimeter so I'll check the basics before re$orting to a technician .
 thanks for the reply and advice

8 plus 8 = 4, your WTR405 will be happy with that, add in another 8 and it goes down to 2.667 (???) which your WT405 will still be happy with - however you will be shifting a serious amount of air and so it will sound awesome... the amount of air you shift is much more important than the watts you shift them with...

I think that's a wise choice, especially since you can pick up a D210XLT at a low price now.  If you pick up a D210XST later then you'll really have a very modular rig as well as an A-kicking big rig if you need it.

Thanx for the replies. I think I'll get the 2nd xlt now and just keep an eye out for a 210 xst in the future. Just hope my wt405 has enough juice for all three cabs!

I don't think you can make a bad choice here -- see my sig. One nice thing about getting the 210 XST is that it's a great standalone cab for smaller gigs, but also pairs well with the 210 XLT.

OTOH, I also have 410 XLT, and if that's anything like pairing two 210 XLTs, good golly, Miss Molly -- tons of booty.

Hi Jason and welcome to the Garden!

Everyone will recommend the XLT/XST combo here on the forum.
But, if you like your tone with just one XLT why not go for the easy to get second XLT? The WT405 will handle them easily and yes, you will be happy with it. You will gain a lot of power by adding that cab.
1. The amp puts out more power 2. The speaker surface gets bigger. 6dB extra, there you go.
I'm afraid that you will love the tone that much that you will hardly ever leave one cab at home.
No need for an extra power amp IMHO.
Rock on!

Hi Yards and welcome to the Garden!

One thing is sure, it's tech time.
Also I agree with Dan, it's a problem with the power supply.
Hard to say which parts died.
It's always a good idea to unplug the amp, because the power switch in most amps is only cutting one side of the power supply so a surge could still go through.

 Yes , I've never experienced this in hundreds of situations with different A/C power sources. We Did as asked and turned our equipment Off (but plugged in). I wasn't certain it was this drop/surge in power until i checked with the guitarist who was unable to use his fender amp that night for the same reason.
  A week later at an outdoor festival when the sound company was troubleshooting their system I thought too, (as you said) to pull the ac cord out of the back of my amp to be on the safe side.

Welcome, Yards.  More technical info will come when Armin weighs in.  Just to educate me about the risk, am I correct in understanding that your amp was turned OFF (but still plugged in) when the power went down and back up?  I guess that surprises me and will make me think about unplugging all equipment when there's a power failure.  Normally I just flip the off switch on the power strip and wait for the power to come back on, but if the surge can bust through an on/off switch then I guess I'll need to unplug everything to be safe.

I recently sold my rig... Markbass Little Mark Tube 800 and 104HF cab... intending on downsizing. Trouble is 2 weeks later i got picked up by a country cover band that does large gigs on the regular. I got an Eden WT-405 and 210xlt as my smaller rig but now i am worried that this wont handle the large festivals and corporate gigs we are doing. I love the sound, even more than my Markbass, but this is not nearly as loud as my old rig (for obvious reasons)

My question is, will 2 210xlt have a lower apperent resonce than just one? Would i be better off with a 210xlt and xst? main reason i ask is because the 210 xst is hard to come by 2nd hand and i can easily get a 210xlt

Aditionally, will the WT405 be enough to bring the two cabs to life or should i add a power amp. I can get a Carvin DCM1000 for a steal!

If i just stick with the WT405 ill add a third cab (all 8ohms and 210s) giving each ~200 watts

thanx for the help and super stoked to be an Eden owner!

Jason
