Eden General / Re: Couple questions about my used D410XLT

Hey  rlakin,

You shouldn't have to rewire anything.  12-ga is heavy wire and will easily handle the 700 watts rms that cab will take.  Original wiring would be either 14 or 16-ga (Armin - which one?).   Looks like it was a later modification (2013) and he got the wiring diagram from Luke at Eden. It's nice to have that wiring diagram included with the cab.

From the serial number it appears that your cab was in 2002.  Also, cabs in the 90's used banana plugs, not the Speakon connectors yours has.  The re-wiring thing may have come about from replacing the L-pad (tweeter control plate).  NEVER turn that control entirely off or it will build up enough heat to burn out the L-pad.  Just turn it on about one notch.  You won't really hear anything, but it will allow just enough power to go to the tweeter that is doesn't burn out the control on the L-pad.

Hi Dave Songer,

Welcome to the Garden!

Armin (bassman1968) will hopefully pop in here with a couple of suggestions.  However, before he does that, I'd make a quick suggestion to hit all the 1/4" jacks with DeOxit 5 (red can) if you're in the US.  Outside of the US, I'm not sure what brand of cleaner is best.  Then work a 1/4" plug in and out of each jack about 10 to 15 times to clean it well.  You'd be amazed at how many times a simple cleaning will fix things.

If that doesn't do it, check back for Armin's comments.

Thanks -- I appreciate the quick replies. I've cleaned some of the jacks, but I'll go through each of them and see what happens! A schematic would be helpful for troubleshooting... and identifying which capacitors could affect the signal like this.

Hi Faux40 and welcome to the Garden

the position of the Gain knob doesn’t mean anything.
Due to part variations (on pots 20%) you can have big differences. Especially with different designs even from the same brand.

First thing I would do is clean all jacks mit Caigs Deoxit. ALL of them.
If it still sounds flat you might need some new capacitors.
Rock on!

There were some complaints of out input gain on some of the early WP100 preamps.


It's been a while but I think a search of the forum for "WP100 low input fix" might result in some answers


Here's a link to one thread. http://www.edenampsforum.com/index.php/topic,18928.msg212685.html#msg212685


If Armin comes by, I expect he'll have a direct answer.

Eden General / WP-100 Low Input Gain Issues
« Last post by faux40 on Today at 12:43:45 PM »
Howdy All,

I just picked up a WP-100 (to keep my WT-800 company). Anyway, I'm not so sure the WP-100 is operating correctly and I need help troubleshooting. I'm concerned that the input gain is low. The pre kinda sounds dead. It works and provides a clean tone, but it's just flat. Not much punch compared to the WT-800.

When I set the gain control to max on the WP-100 the input led only flickers when I really bang on the strings. By contrast, the WT-800 input led glows continuously when play with the gain all the way up. Setting the gain on the WT-800 to about 1 o'clock is about the equivalent to the WP-100 with the gain at max.

I've tried a couple basses, cleaned the jacks (input, eff. loop, etc.) and even swapped the tube and the input remains low. With Turbo Boost on, the light flickers more when set max, but it's still significantly less than the WT-800.

Does this seem right? Am I missing something? Can someone help troubleshoot?

Thanks!

Eden General / Re: D210XLT vs D410XLT, any difference in growl?

Yeah, okay, so that "come by and A/B mine" thing might not work out so well -- I'm in Connecticut, USA.

But if  you're ever in the neighborhood ...

I work regularly downtown Nashville and my WTDI makes a hissing noise, the sound engineers always hear it and ask why it's doing it. I have to turn the treble all the way down on the DI to get by with using it. I am using old Fender Basses. I like the di however I will have to replace it or get this problem solved. I hope someone here can help.
