Ibanez UE400 analog multi-effects. I have one (and its partner, the UE405, which I like better), they’re fab!

Re: What about Peter Buck?

The bridge and pickups on his guitars appear to be custom. Any idea what kind of bridge that is what kind of pickups? Pickups are stock Hi-Gains. The bridges are brass, and I can’t remember who makes them, but they resemble the “Stars” (“Starz?”) aftermarket stuff from back in the day. As most folk...

Re: Stolen 362???

I must admit, while I wouldn't give my 362/12 up, I did look at the headstock on the six string neck of this one and go, "oh...hello there!"

Re: TR120B speaker help!

Well ****. I went and got (and installed) the replacement* speaker...which is 4Ω.

Works good so far.

Bearing in mind that this is a transistor amp, am I risking any damage by sticking with this setup? What are the downsides?


*Repalcement for the damaged one, that is.

Re: TR120B speaker help!

Update:

1. The purple is the "+" wire. So, there you have it.

2. Replacement speaker arrived damaged. Waiting for advisement/replacement from seller.

Re: TR120B speaker help!

I suppose there is a "psychology" to which polarity sounds better, so that's worth a shot. 8) It won't harm the amp at all, either way the speaker is connected. Is this a harbinger of things to come? :mrgreen: Is the TR35B a sealed, or, ported cabinet? That could make a difference in how ...

Re: TR120B speaker help!

As there is only one speaker driver in the amp it doesn't really matter what the polarity is. That would only come into play if you were to connect an extension cabinet to the external speaker jack. What speaker did you find to put in the amp? I read on the internet - so it must be true! - that the...

Re: TR120B speaker help!

So according to this (TR35B, which is close enough): http://www.rickenbacker.com/pdfs/19342.pdf ...the hard-wired speaker jumps off of the external speaker jack. So if I look at that jack, I should be able to see which colored wire is the positive and which is negative, and hook them up appropriatel...

Re: TR120B speaker help!

Ok, so I found a 200w, 4Ω speaker. It's on it's way.

(I also looked up the rating on the Radio Shack speaker that had been in there...50w at 8Ω. No wonder it got wonky!)

Still don't know which of the wires is plus and which is minus.

Re: TR120B speaker help!

According to the back panel, its 4Ω. So that part is solved.

TR120B speaker help!

Blew the speaker in my amp, took it out - and its from Radio Shack. Humph.

Anyway:

- What was OEM in these?

- What's the correct impedance?

- As I took it out of the cab, the purple and yellow + and - wires fell off their lugs. Which one is the + and which is the - ???

Thanks folks!
