I just bought a DT25 head + cab. The only amp that I have owned before this is the 20W Fender Mustang I. So after I plugged in and started playing, I couldn't hear any sound from the cab. I was sitting 3-4 feet away from the cab. The settings on the head were as follows:
Low Volume Output = OFF
Voicing = 1, Pentode, Class A
Drive = 3, Bass = 6, Mid = 5, Treble = 5, Presence = 3
Volume = 5
Master Volume = 4
I could hear through voicings 2 and 4 though. Then I changed the settings on the head as per the settings layout shown on the head top which basically turns up the volume all the way up to 10 and it was okay.
My question here is that were my original settings too low and is it normal that I couldn't hear anything at those settings and for this voicing is the volume supposed to be turned way up high? I just want to make sure that there is nothing wrong with the amp itself and if I need to return it.
Like I said, since I've only played a Mustang I before, I am used to that thing which plays pretty loud at master volume of 3-4 and amp volume of less than 5 so which is why I am confused.
Thanks for your help in advance!
