  1. Hi i'm having troubles getting my rig running. I have my Pod HD Pro X going 1/4 unbalanced output to an XLR input on the Crown Xls 1000. From there i'm going speakon output from the crown to 1/4 input on the back on the cab. I hear a slight buzz from the cabinet but i cant get any guitar sound out of it. The Poweramp is also set to bridge bypass if that helps. Any help/advice would be appreciated.
  2. I have a line 6 spider valve 212 mk1 40w combo amp. Im looking to attatch an extention 4x12 cabinet to it for my bands live performances. I have 2 celestian 16 ohm speakers. What speaker specs for the cabinet as far as ohms can i use to work with the combo amp... i have multiple output jacks..... 8 ohm pair, 4 ohm single, 8 ohm out, preamp out and power amp in. along with a direct out. Which of these can u use with a compatible cabinet, and what would the specs of a compatible cabinet be?
  3. Hey guys, i'm in serious need of some better sound. I want to get a 4x12 cabinet, i have been looking at something like the Line 6 412VS so i can finally use the stereo capabilities of my POD HD... Just wondering, can i plug it straight into the cabinet and have it work? Or will i need a Stereo Poweramp or something?
  4. So i run my Pod HD Pro into a Mesa 50/50 power amp and a 4x12 V30/G12T75 Cab. On my pod, i run in stack pwr amp mode with the cab modeling off. When setting my tones up, i've always felt like i get a better tone using the full models (power amp included) vs preamp only models, but i have not tried the pre-only models yet in a band setting. Once i get to practice, i'm always wanting to test my latest tweaks to my usual full amp model patches - and i never really tweak at the gig. GRanted, i really feel like i'm getting some great, realistic tones from the full models, but i'm always looking to improve my tone. I realize in theory the "pre-only" models make more sense with my setup, but i'm going by my ears. So my question for those using the pod live with a power amp and cab - do you use the full models or preamp only models. Would love to hear some other folks' experience on this and what you think of each. Thanks!
  5. This is my setup and i've been thinking about getting a 4 by 12 cabinet speaker but i have no idea what kind of cabinet speaker to buy. I mainly play metal and old metalcore like As I Lay Dying and All That Remains. Any suggestions on what kind of cabinet speaker i should buy? Here is a picture of my setup
  6. Hey, I sure could use some help on this. I have a Spider IV 75 watt amp. The amp got soup poured into the brain via the screws that attach the handles to the top of the case. I need to remove the brain from the cabinet and clean it out and make sure there is nothing connecting up to something else. I have contacted Tech Support and they told me to remove the screws from the top and push it backwards front to back., Only one problem. The brain is attached to a thick metal plate that has 5 RED screw heads that I see and that plate is wedged into the amp's box top and bottom. There is NO way to remove those screws so the plate no longer stops the brain from sliding backwards and out of the case. AND the only way that I see is to actually split open the case at the top where the top and side are Jigsawed into one another. Also the Speaker cover cloth is mounted to a board and that board is also part of the problem in that it jigsaws into the bottom of the brain and is in between the plate and the brain being removed from front to back., Has anyone removed this before? Is there any trick of device that I am not aware of to get the brain out of the case? The way this looks is that the brain was bolted to this metal plate that the controls stick through and that metal plate must be removed from the sides of the case before that brain is going anywhere. So, that means splitting open the case at the top so that I can actually push the entire board that the brain is attached to via that plate and slide the top out of the jigsaw'd top and sides woods. Any help would be appreciated. THANK you,djohnsontexas@yahoo.com

  8. Deutsch Français Q: What are the common ohm ratings for guitar speaker cabinets? A: The common ohm ratings are 16, 8, and 4 ohms. It is important to look at the cabinet inputs to correctly match the rating for your setup to ensure the optimal output and performance of your amplifier. While some ohm mismatches are acceptable, other ohm mismatches can cause failure in your amplifier's power amp section. REMEMBER: Impedance is measured in (Ω) ohms. Impedance determines how much current will flow through a component. A very high impedance allows a small amount of current to flow (i.e. a 16 ohm speaker load draws less current than an 8 ohm amp is ready to supply, but it will work safely). A very low impedance allows a large amount of current to flow (i.e. a 4 ohm speaker load draws too much current from an 8 ohm amp, ultimately overheating the amp). Unacceptable Ohm Mismatches: When connecting any amplifier to an external cabinet it is important to keep in mind that the ohm load of your cabinet should not be lower in number than the ohm rating of your amplifier (which can cause the amplifier to fail). I.e. - If the amp output has an overall rating of 8 ohms DO NOT run with an external cab that has an overall rating of 4 ohms. Acceptable Ohm Mismatches: It is acceptable to run the overall ohm load output of an amplifier to a cabinet that is higher in number. I.e. If your amp output has an overall output rating of 8 ohms you can run into an external cabinet that has an overall rating of 16 ohms. Be aware that you will lose ~15-20 percent of perceived volume with solid state power amplifiers when running this type of ohm mismatch, but you will suffer no failures. Q: Can I run two cabinets with different ohm ratings? A: We do not recommend running cabinets with different ohm ratings, as it may create an ohm load that your amplifier will not recognize and can possibly damage the power amp output section. Q: How do I connect my Line 6 amplifier to the external speaker cabinet? A: Your manual should explain most situations you would run into. Feel free to contact us and ask questions re: specific setups not covered in the manual and we will add them to this document. For example: Q: Can I run my Line 6 amplifier without a speaker load (i.e. not connected to a speaker) A: All Line 6 amplifiers (with the exception of the Spider valve series) are safe to run without any speaker load connected. The DT series and Spider Valve series amps **must have a speaker load connected to avoid damage to the output transformer.** Spider II, III, IV Cabinet Wiring - The Spider II & III HD150s are set up with 8 ohm stereo outputs to match the Spider cabs. You will want to use two speaker cables to connect to both jacks of the cabinet. If you do not connect both speaker outputs to an 8 ohm load (or higher) you can suffer a power amp failure. - Spider II & III HD75s runs 4 ohms mono. You will want to use two speaker cables to run the 8 ohms stereo cabinet from the head to the cab (creating a 4 ohm load) If you only use one cable, you may only get two of the four speakers to function. - Please consult the labeling on the cabinet or use a multi-meter to measure the ohm rating to ensure you will not induce failure with an incorrect connection. Q: Is there a video tutorial where I can see different cabinet connection options? A: Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections Q: I am running my Spider HD with a cabinet from a different manufacturer which has a different ohm configuration that what the Spider HD needs. What can I do? A: Please see the previous information on acceptable ohm mismatches. If the ohm mismatch is not acceptable you may need to have your cabinet modified to conform to the needs of the Spider HD series. Please have this modification performed at your nearest Line 6 Service Center. Q: What are the wattage outputs and ohm loads on the Line 6 amplifiers not already discussed? Vetta/Vetta II HD 300W:4/8/16 ohms HD147 300W:4/8/16 ohms Flextone II HD 200W 2X12:4/8/16 ohms Flextone HD 300W:4/8/16 ohm Duoverb HD 100W:4/8 ohm F.A.Q.: Boxenverbindungen und Ohm Welche sind die üblichen Impedanzen für Gitarren Lautsprecherboxen? Die üblichen Impedanzen sind 16, 8 und 4 Ω. Es ist wichtig, sich die Eingänge der Box genau anzusehen um die Impedanz optimal auf Ihr Setup anzupassen und so eine optimale Ausgangsleistung des Verstärkers zu erhalten. Während manche Ohm-Diskrepanzen akzeptabel sind, können wiederum andere zum Versagen der Endstufe führen. Impedanz wird in Ohm gemessen. Die Impedanz legt fest, wieviel Strom durch eine Komponente fließt. Eine sehr hohe Impedanz sorgt dafür, dass nur eine geringe Menge Strom fließt (z.B.: ein 16 Ω Lautsprecher braucht weniger Strom als ein 8 Verstärker leisten kann, funktioniert jedoch gefahrlos.). Eine sehr niederige Impedanz hingegen lässt eine große Menge Strom fließen (z.B.: ein 4 Ω Lautsprecher zieht zu viel Strom für einen 8 Ω Verstärker und führt zur Ãœberhitzung des Verstärkers.). Inakzeptable Ohm-Diskrepanzen: Wenn Sie einen Verstärker an eine externe Box anschließen ist es wichtig, dass die Impedanz der Box nicht tiefer ist als die des Verstärkers (was dazu führen kann, dass der Verstärker ausfällt.). Z.B.: Wenn die Ausgabe des Verstärkers eine Impedanz von 8 Ω hat, dürfen Sie AUF KEINEN FALL eine Lautsprecherbox benutzen, die nur 4 Ω Impedanz hat. Akzeptable Ohm-Diskrepanzen: Eine Ohm-Diskrepanz ist akzeptabel, wenn die Impedanz eines Verstärkers, den Sie an eine Box anschließen niedriger ist als die der Box. Z.B.: Wenn die Ausgabe des Verstärkers eine Impedanz von 8 Ω hat, können Sie eine externe Box benutzen, mit 16 Ω Impedanz. Aber Achtung, Sie werden ca. 15-20% Lautstärke mit einer Transistorendstufe verlieren wenn Sie diese Art Setup benutzen, aber es wird ohne Ausfall funktionieren. Kann ich zwei verschiedene Boxen benutzen, die verschiedene Impedanzen haben? Wir empfehlen die Nutzung von Boxen mit verschiedenen Impedanzen NICHT, da dies eine Impedanz erzeugen kann, die der Verstärker nicht erkennt und kann so auch die Endstufe beschädigen. Wie schließe ich meinen Line 6 Verstärker an eine externe Box an? In Ihrem Benutzerhandbuch sollte dies für die meisten Situationen ausführlch beschrieben sein. Bitte kontaktieren Sie uns und stellen Sie jegliche Fragen über Setups die nicht im Benutzerhandbuch aufgeführt sind und wir werden diese an dieses Dokument anhängen. Z.B.: Kann ich meinen Line 6 Verstärker ohne Box benutzen? Alle Line 6 Geräte können auch betrieben werden ohne, dass eine Box an diesen angeschlossen ist (mit Ausnahme der Spider Valve Serie). **ACHTUNG, die DT und Spider Valve Serien müssen eine Box angeschlossen haben um jeglichen Schaden zu vermeiden.** Verkabelung der Spider II, II, IV Boxen Die Spider II & III HD 150 Boxen haben 8 Ω Ausgänge um den Spider Boxen zu entsprechen. Sie brauchen 2 Lautsprecherkabel, um diese an beide Klickenbuchsen der Box anzuschließen. Sollten Sie nicht beide Lautsprecherausgänge an eine 8 Ω Impedanz anschließen, kann Ihre Endstufe versagen. Spider II & III HD 75 Boxen haben 4 Ω Mono Ausgänge. Sie brauchen 2 Lautsprecherkabel, um die 8 Ω Stereo Box zu benutzen (was einee 4 Ω Impedanz erzeugt). Sollten Sie hier nur ein Kabel benutzen funktionieren nur 2 der 4 Lautsprecher. Benutzen Sie bitte die Beschriftung auf der Box oder ein Multimeter um die Impedanz zu messen. So können Sie einen Ausfall aufgrund falscher Impedanz ausschließen. Gibt es ein Videotutorial über die verschiedenen Boxen Anschlüsse? Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections (Englisch) Ich benutze mein Spider HD mit einer Box eines anderen Herstellers, welche eine unterschiedliche Impedanz hat als die, die mein Spider HD braucht. Was kann ich tun? Bitte schauen Sie sich dazu die vorherigen Informationen über akzeptable und inakzeptable Ohm-Diskrepazen an, wenn diese inakzeptabel ist kann es sein, dass Sie Ihre Box modifizieren müssen, damit Sie dem Spider HD entspricht. Bitte lassen Sie diese Modifikation im nächstgelegenen Line 6 Service Center durchführen. Welche ist die Wattleistung und Impedanz anderer, noch nicht beschriebener, Line 6 Verstärker? Vetta/Vetta II HD 300W; 4/8/16 Ω HD147 300W; 4/8/16 Ω Flextone II HD 200W 2X12; 4/8/16 Ω Flextone HD 300W; 4/8/16 Ω Duoverb HD 100W; 4/8 Ω F.A.Q.: Haut-parleur et ohm: Quels sont les impédances communes pour les baffles guitare? Les impédances communes sont 16, 8 et 4 Ω. C'est important de vérifier l'impédance de l'entrée du baffle guitare pour égaler cette impédance à votre système afin de recevoir une sortie et performance optimale de l'ampli. Pendant que quelques discordances sont acceptables, autres peuvent causer un échec dans la section ampli de puissance. L'impédance est mesurée en ohms Ω. L'impédance mesure la circulation du courant dans un composant. Une impédance très haute permet à une petite quantité de courant de circuler. (Par exemple, un haut-parleur de 16 Ω consommé moins de courant qu'un 8 Ω ampli peut fournir. Mais ce setup fonctionne en toute sécurité.) Une impédance très basse permet à une grande quantité de courant de circuler. (Par exemple, un haut-parleur de 4 Ω consommé trop de courant pour un ampli de 8 Ω. Ce setup surchauffe l'ampli.) Discordances ohms inacceptables: Si vous connectez un amplificateur à un haut-parleur externe, c'est important de savoir que l'impédance du haut-parleur ne peut pas être plus basse que l'impédance de l'amplificateur. (Échec de l'ampli) Par exemple, si l'amplificateur a une impédance de sortie de 8 Ω, vous ne pouvez pas utiliser un haut-parleur externe de 4 Ω. Discordances ohms acceptables: C'est acceptable d'avoir un haut-parleur avec une impédance d'entrée plus haut que la sortie de l'amplificateur. Par exemple: Si la sortie de l'ampli a une impédance de 8 Ω, vous pouvez utiliser un haut-parleur avec une impédance de 16 Ω. Attention, vous perdez 15-20% de volume avec un amplificateur de puissance à semi-conducteur si vous exécutez cette configuration mais vous ne souffrez aucun échec. Est-ce que je peux utiliser deux haut-parleurs avec des impédances différents? Nous ne recommandons pas l'utilisation de deux haut-parleurs avec des impédances différents. Ce peut causer une impédance, l'ampli ne sait pas reconnaitre et peut endommager la sortie de l'ampli de puissance. Comment est-ce que je peux connecter mon ampli Line 6 à l'haut-parleur externe? Le manuel d'utilisation devrait expliquer la plupart des situations. N'hésitez pas à nous contacter et poser des questions sur les configurations spécifiques et nous les ajoutons à ce document. Par exemple: Est-ce que je peux utiliser mon ampli Line 6 sans impédance? Tous les amplis Line 6 (série Spider Valce exceptée) peuvent-être utilisés sans impédance haut-parleur connecté. ** Les séries DT et Spider Valve doivent avoir connecté une impédance haut-parleur pour éviter les dommages au transformateur de sortie. ** Spider II, III et IV: câblage du haut-parleur Les Spider II et II HD150s sont configurés avec des sorites 8 Ω stéréo pour correspondre aux haut-parleurs Spider. Vous avez besoin de deux câbles haut-parleurs pour connecter les deux jacks du haut-parleur. Si vous ne connectez pas les deux sorties à une impédance de 8 Ω, vous pouvez souffrir d'une insuffisance ampli de puissance. Spider II et III HD75s sont configurés avec des sorties 4 Ω mono. Vous avez besoin de deux câbles haut-parleurs pour utiliser l'haut-parleur 8 Ω stéréo. (créant une impédance 4 Ω) Si vous utilisez un seul câble, seulement deux des quatre haut-parleurs fonctionnent. Utilisez l'étiquetage sur l'haut-parleur ou un multimètre pour mesurer l'impédance pour vous assurer que vous ne provoquez aucun échec avec une connexion incorrecte. Est-ce qu'il y en a un vidéo tutoriel concernant les options de connexion du haut-parleur? Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections (anglais) J'utilise le Spider HD avec un haut-parleur d'un fabricant différent, ce haut-parleur a une configuration d'impédance différente que mon Spider HD a besoin. Qu'est-ce que je peux faire? Veuillez consulter les informations précédentes sur les discordances ohms acceptables. Si la discordance ohm est inacceptable, c'est possible que vous avez besoin de modifier l'haut-parleur afin de le conformer au Spider HD. Veuillez faire effectuer cette modification au centre de service Line 6 le plus proche. Quels sont les puissances en watts des sorties des amplis Line 6 pas encore discuté? Vetta/Vetta II HD 300W; 4/8/16 Ω HD147 300W; 4/8/16 Ω Flextone II HD 200W; 2x12: 4/8/16 Ω Flextone HD 300W; 4/8/16 Ω Duoverb HD 100W; 4/8 Ω
  9. Q: How do I turn on/off the Flextone's Noise Gate? A: On the original Flextone, just hold down the Tap Tempo button and rotate the Effects Select knob to Bypass to turn it off, or anything other than Bypass to turn it on. In firmware versions earlier than 1.4, the noise gate defaults to ON, 1.4 or later defaults to noise gate OFF. On the Flextone II, hold the tap tempo button and turn the REVERB button past 12 o'clock to turn the noise gate on, below 12 o'clock to turn it off.Q: Q: When I'm using the Flextone with the controller, why can't I turn on (insert effect name here)? A: Because the Flextone doesn't have as much raw processing power as the Vetta, it cannot run all of the different effects at the same time. You're limited to only one of the selections on the Effect Select knob per patch (Reverb is always available, though). If a patch is saved with, say, Delay/Flange 1 enabled, there's no way you can turn on a Rotary Speaker effect in that patch. You can, however, create an adjacent patch that is identical, except for the effects selection. Q: Do I need the Line6 Floor Board (Flextone I and II) or FBV controller (Flextone III) to access the 36 channels of the Flextone Series? A: Yes. The Line 6 controller will not only enable you to access all of the banks and channels in your Flextone amplifier, but the controller will also give you the ability to turn individual effects off and on, access the tuner and tap tempo functions, and includes a wah and volume pedal. Q: How do I find out the software version of my Flextone? A: In order to find out the software version of your Flextone, simply hold down the "C" button while you turn the amp on. If you continue to hold the "C" button down, you will notice that the "D" button will blink once or twice and then the "SAVE" button will blink a number of times. The number of times the "D" button blinks indicates the release number and the number of times the "SAVE" button blinks indicates the sub-release. For example, if the "D" button blinks once and the "SAVE" button blinks four times, this indicates software version 1.4. Q: How do I find out the stored settings in a particular Flextone Patch? A: To find out the stored settings in any given Flextone program, hold down the SAVE button while turning a knob. The Manual button will light until you reach the knobs stored setting, at which time the Manual light will turn off and the location of the knob will reflect it's stored setting. Hold down SAVE and TAP to view the secondary settings. Q: Can I download tones to my Flextone? A: If your amp is an original Flextone series, then Line 6 Edit software will not work, as there is no MIDI on these models. If it's a Flextone II or III series, you're in luck. You'll need a Mac or PC computer with a MIDI interface capable of handling large MIDI transfers. You can then download the tones from www.customtone.com to the amp, via the free Line 6 Edit software. Q: Will my Flextone II/III plus power a 4x12 cabinet? If so, about how many watts would this be? A:It's fine to connect a 4x12 cabinet to the Flextone II/III Plus, make sure the cab is set to "8 ohm mono ( Left only )" to protect your Flextone plus. The total watts connected in the manner will be about 50 watts per side 100 watts total. You can also use a Power amp and external cab with the Flextone II/III Plus by connecting from the XLR left mono line out to the power amp and on to the speaker cab. Q: What are the differences between Flextone models? A: The main differences between the Flextone, Flextone Plus and, Flextone XL lie mainly in the amplifiers' speaker configurations and wattage. The Classic Flextone comes with one 12 inch Celestion speaker along with one 75 watt amp to power it. The Flextone Plus also comes with one 12 inch Celestion speaker but has two 75 watt amps, one to power the existing speaker and one to power an extension cabinet through the Flextone's cabinet extension jack. Alone the amp will run at 75 watts. However, with the extension cabinet, the amp will run at 150 watts. The Flextone XL comes complete with two 12 inch Celestion speakers and two 75 watt power amps that put out a combined 150 watts of power. The original Flextone HD has two channels of 150 watts each into a 4 ohm load and 100 watts into 8 ohms, but lower impedance loads should be avoided . The amplifier will drive a 16 ohm load, but will not be as loud as if it were driving an 8 ohm load. The Flextone II HD is 100 watts per side at 4, 8, or 16 (switchable) ohms. The software within the Flextones are basically the same in each model as well as each generation. The main change is with the tones. At Line 6, we try to recreate as close as possible, the tone we are modeling to the original amp. As the modeling software for the POD and POD XT has become more accurate, these same characteristics have been passed along to our series of Flextone amps. As well as tonal changes, we've also added some new modeling in the newer versions of the software. The original Flextone comes stock with 16 amp models while the Flextone II and III families come with 32. The Flextone II also has 36 user presets instead of 12, 15 mix and match Cabinet Models, MIDI In and Out and most knobs have a secondary function. Plus, the Flextone II Plus, XL and HD feature external speaker outs and XLR outputs that can be used to connect the amp directly to a mixer. See your user manual for more information. Q: Can I use a MIDI controller with my Flextone amp? A: The Flextone will respond to MIDI Program Change and MIDI Sysex messages when used with an external MIDI controller. For more details on how MIDI functions with your Flextone download the user manual. Q: What upgrades are available for my Flextone amplifier? A: Unfortunately, for Flextone I, II and II HD owners, Line 6 no longer has or produces EPROM upgrade chips. For Flextone III users, certain Flash Memory updates can be made via our Line 6 Monkey software with your computer through a USB to MIDI interface. After updating to 1.1, you may see different behavior in the effects on some Flextone III amps. Why only some? Flextone III had a minor change to its OTP (one time programmable) BIOS chip after several months in production (from version 1.00 to version 1.02. Nobody knows what happened to 1.01, and nobody likes to talk about it). This change affected the way some of the effects controls respond when an effect is loaded. None of the functionality was lost, and patches that you've stored are not changed. Flex III's behavior on recalling stored channels has not changed at all. How can I tell if my amp is going to change behavior or not? If you power up holding down the 'B' channel select button, the LED on the 'B' button will blink to indicate the major revision (in this case, it will blink once) and the LED on the 'D' button will blink to indicate the sub-release (in this case either it will blink twice or it won't blink at all). If this indicates that you have 1.00, your amp's behavior will not change from what it has been. If it indicates 1.02, it will change be as follows: The only change that you should see is that, on the affected (1.02 OTP) amps, when you first select an effect from edit mode (in other words, when you're first editing channel settings), its setting will reflect the current knob position, rather than an arbitrary default, and on two of the effects. You will also notice that the Tweak and 2nd Function controls are not reversed for the Chorus and Flanger effects. The changed control functions become Depth and Rate (Speed) instead of the previous Speed (Rate) and Depth/Feedback.
  10. Note: The Spider III was released in 2006 and discontinued in 2010. The Spider III is now listed as a Legacy Product. Q: How are the Artist preset banks categorization and alphabetized? A:When looking at the list of the banks in the unit, the banks seem to be broken into four different sections: 1. Albert Lee - Julien K 2. Ash - Volto 3. The Accident Experiment - Thursday 4. Songs 50's - Misc. Fun Each of the first 3 sections (artist banks) is alphabetized. Is there a reason all the artist presets overall aren't alphabetized? The artist banks are categorized by Clean, Dirty and Heavy: 1. Albert Lee - Julien K: Cleaner patches 2. Ash - Volto: Midgainy patches 3. The Accident Experiment - Thursday: Heavily overdriven patches Q: How do I perform a factory reset on my Spider III? Line 6 Device Factory Reset Procedures Q: How do I use the compare mode (to find where the knobs were originally set)? A: Press and hold the Tap button, then turn the Amp Models knob. This activates Spider III's "Compare mode". Now turn any knob other than Amp Model and Master Volume, and the channel lights will tell you whether you need to turn that knob up (Channel A lights) or down (Channel D lights) to match the stored setting. The Channel B & C lights will be lit at the same time once the knob position matches the stored setting exactly. Q: How do I connect the Spider III HD 150 to the Spider Cabinet? A: The Spider III HD 150 is designed to see a load on *both * speaker outputs by connecting the left and the right inputs to the Spider cabinet with speaker cables. Running the Spider III HD 150 into a 4 ohm load may result in damage to the amplifier. Please see the following link for more information: Cabinet Connection and Ohm F.A.Q. Q: Can I use two Spider III cabinets with the Spider III HD 150? A:The Spider III HD 150 was designed to power a single Spider III Stereo Cabinet with a stereo 8 ohm load. Using two Spider III cabs would require a modification to each cab so that they are each rewired to produce a 8 ohm mono load. This modification would preferably be done by an authorized Line 6 service center, which can be located from the Service Center link on the Support page. Q: How do I connect external speakers to my Spider III 150 amplifier? A: You will need to disconnect the internal speakers (covering the dry-solder clips with electrical tape) and connect both external speaker outputs to an 8 ohm (or higher) load. Do not connect just one side, as this may cause a power amp failure. Powering the internal speakers along with a external speakers may cause a power amp failure and is not supported. Q: What type of speaker is used on the Spider III combo series? Spider III 15: Custom 15 (4 ohm) Spider III 30: Celestion G12E50 (4 ohm) Spider III 75/150: Celestion G12P80 (8 ohm) Spider III 120:(2) Celestion G10P80 (8 ohm)
