: Help! I have a Crate BT-350 head, and a set of ADA basslines cabs. I especially love the 2x10 cab, but it has a 15 inch sub that goes with it.

: I keep blowing my speakers annually (Just after the reconing warranty has expired. Go Figure!) and want to know if any one has any suggestions, either in EQ, or accessories to extend the life of these cabs.
: I intend to buy new and better stuff, so save those "Trash that junk" comments, but I can't get new toys if I keep having to spend money fixing the old ones!
: suggestions? Any body?

Hey there,
judging from your description, yours might be a case of impedance mismatch. You don't provide the specs for the amp head or the cabinets or wether you connected in parallel or series, but I know several musicians who blew the hell of out their speakers because of improper matching of their rigs. Check your amp/cabs literature and/or back panels to make sure your connections are correct. Overloading a cab or set of cabs could be the source of your problems, and it's easily fixable with the right connections. Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,
