Okay... I've never seen anything like this before (no, this wasn't drug-induced ;). K.. first of all, my gear:

Gallien Krueger 1001RB head
Gallien Krueger 410RBH cab

I was playing fairly hard at a rehearsal with my band the other night, but not necessarily loud.. master volume about 1/2, bass EQ at 12:00. My fellow band members saw this weird bluish glow around each of the 4 woofers which tended to come and go depending on certain notes I was playing. It wasn't a sharp staticky sparking kind of glow; it was more like a soft halo kind of glow. Apparently, it appeared as if there may have been something glowing in the cabinet too..

NOW, the funny thing is there was zero burning smell or distortion from the cab, and it seems to still work perfectly. There was no excessive heat or anything, so it would seem that there was no electrical arcing or overloading going on.

My question to you: what the hell was this??? :) Has anyone ever seen speakers do this before? What could have caused this to happen?

Colin :)
