  1. I've got what I'm sure some will think is a really stupid question but I'm at my wits end trying to find something of any substance on the internet. I have a Spider IV HD 150 which we probably all know is stereo at 8 ohms per channel. I'm looking at getting a new cab that is rated at 8 ohms mono, 4 ohms stereo. As I understand it, it's generally a bad idea to run a single channel since the amp is designed to run stereo; makes sense. As I also understand it, while it is generally ok to run an amp with a lower impedance to a cab with a higher impedance (e.g. 8 ohm amp to 16 ohm cab), it is not good to run it the other way around (e.g. higher impedance to lower impedance). So, after doing some looking it seems that one option is to simply rewire the speakers into to 16 ohm series, deal with a little volume loss, and you're golden. However, I was wondering if it's possible to bridge the two stereo channels by way of a y adapter. It seems, in my incredibly limited knowledge of the subject, that in theory you would be left with a 4 ohm mono out that could be fed to a 8 ohm mono connection on the cab. This almost seems too simple but it make sense to me, again with my limited knowledge on the subject. Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks. - James
  2. Hi, I have all of a sudden, from nowhere experienced some kind of problem with my Spider IV 75. When turning on the amp you hear a crackling sound and then a continuous high pitched tone and the LCD display won't light up. Is my poor favorite amp dead or does anybody have some kind of idea on how to solve this? Thanks!
  3. I'm looking for a decent distortion on this spider iv 75 and I can't quite find one. I read another post where someone had the same issue. The distortion tends to have an ear piercing tone. I bought the spider iv 150 and traded it for the 75 because I heard it has a better sound. (kicking myself for that now.) but this one is the same. Now I'm not looking for studio sound out of this amp but something that doesn't pierce and has a little more clarity would be nice. amp is upgraded firmware(2.0) and i've messed around with near every possibility. If anyone has a decent heavy distortion and wish to share their settings, id appreciate it. I've tried it with about 5 guitars and its not the guitar tone. The old line6 ax2 sounds twice as good imo.
  4. Hola! Recientemente compre un Line 6 Spider iv de 75 watts Todo hiba bien durante unas horas hasta que empeze con algunas dudas Estaba probando los presets y haciendo los mios por supuesto cuando note que el volumen en algunos de los presets o preajustes estaban demasiado altos, por lo que invesitgue un poco en internet (no tengo el manual) y descrubri para que sirve el volumen del canal xD El problema surgio cuando guarde uno de mis ajustes con un volumen equivocado, aqui un ejemplo Drive Bass Mid Treb Channel Vol. 7 6 4 8 3 (Un aproximado de como quedo segun el display y las perillas) Al notar que el volumen era bajo comparado con el de otros presets decidi moverlo un poco quedando asi Drive Bass Mid Treb Channel Vol. 7 6 4 8 5 (Un aproximado de como quedo segun el display y las perillas) Pero!!!!! perdi por completo el volumen, paso de sonar poco a no sonar nada....para lograr obtener volumen tenia que subir ya fuera el master o a todo el volumen del canal. Pero el volumen seguia siendo bajo. Que estoy haciendo mal? PD: eh estado checando los presets y esto no lo hace con todos, solo con algunos.
  5. Hello there.. I am very new to any computer recording whatsoever.I have a pc laptop. I am looking to start recording some basic guitar tracks, and then hopefully some vocals over that. I would like to do all of this from my laptop, on a fairly tight budget. I am thinking of using reaper. Does anyone reccommend Reaper? Pros/Cons? What type of interface should I use? Can i use my mk2 express as an interface? Thanks for any help....
  6. I have a Spider IV 75 and FBV Express MkII that is about 1.5 years old. I didn't use it a lot (maybe 20 times in the first year) but when I did use it, it worked fine. A few months ago the amp no longer made any sound, the tuner did not recognize my input, but all the channels can switch just fine. This happened just after my warranty expired and the nearest service center is extremely inconvenient. I took it to another shop to help diagnose the issue and the tech said all the components seem fine (speaker works, input jack seems fine), but he thinks there could be a problem with the motherboard/processor. The estimate to fix it is almost the same price as the amp! How am I supposed to proceed? If I need to replace the motherboard is this something Line 6 could send me and I could try to fix myself? I've bought line 6 products before and have always been satisfied but I'm really upset that I spent money on an amp that broke right after the warrant ended, and getting to the authorized service center would require me to take time off of work. Not sure I'd buy another amp at this point but if repairing my amp costs nearly the same as a new amp, what are my options?
  7. Simple question really, is the built in tuner on the Spider IV 120 able to tune 8 string guitars? I'm going to be buying an 8 soon and I can't seem to find any tuners that will work for an 8 string. If the built in tuner doesn't work, does anyone know of any tuners that will work with one?
  8. Hello, I've had my Spider IV 15w amplifier for more or less 3 years. Recently, I've been noticing that the settings and effects on the amplifier are overlapping on the tones, even if those tones have no effects at all. Let me explain with an example: My 'Clean' tone has Chorus activated and also a bit of Reverb, and it is saved like that; My 'Metal' tone has no Primary effect and it has a bit of Delay. It's also save like that; The knobs on the amplifier remain with the setting I left for the 'Clean' tone; If I play the Clean tone, there is no problem, and the settings remain the same, but if I suddenly switch to the 'Metal' (or any other) channel, I can play that setting as I saved it for some seconds, but then the settings for the first channel (the settings the knobs indicate, actually) kick into the 'Metal' channel. As a result I get my 'Metal' channel, which was saved to have just Delay, to now have Chorus and Reverb instead. I have tried resetting the amp to factory settings a couple of times, and it works for some days, but then goes back to the same issue. I've also checked for loose cables or connections and there are none, and the amplifier has never been damaged in any way. And just recently, it has been stuck on a Flanger effect I can't seem to take off my tones, even when the knobs are not on Flanger. Has anyone had this problem too? I'd be very grateful to whomever provided me with a possible solution to this! Thanks in advance.
  9. hi im carlos I have the following problem: I have a line6 spider IV amp. For some time, the delay effect is activated without having moved the switch. My favorite preset is like buttah. After ignition amplifier, delay effect runs without activating the switch a few bars. It is very uncomfortable because while play guitar at times the effect is activated. Every minute is activated and after the amp back to its natural state but one minute later altered again. It is impossible to change preset because the delay is activated only interrupting the operation of preset change. What do I do? :unsure: was a mistake to buy the spider iv? :blink: as I fix this? :rolleyes: I'm the one who would happen? <_< atentamente: Carlos Gonzalez Ortiz :)
  10. I just got a spider IV 150 2x12 combo amp and at the store the preset knob was acting funny, skipping presets not turning like it should then when I got it home the knob stopped working altogether. I spin the knob to select presets and the knob just spins and spins and does not change my presets and the knob is VERY loose and wobbles. Has anyone else had this issue or have an idea of what I can do???
  11. Hello!I just bought a FBV2 switch and it's really annoying that I can't get from the Clean preset channel to the Metal channel with just a single press.Is there a way I can maybe switch the channels around?I tried getting Crunch to sound like Clean but it just does not sound the same,I guess every preset is different.So is there any way to change the preset order?(have the clean channel where the crunch channel shoud be and the crunch where the clean shoud be)
  12. I recently bought a Spider IV and I was wondering if anyone knows if I can transfer my Spider III users channels to my Spider IV? Or maybe some sort of save to my computer and upload... I'm registered with Line 6 and have the Line 6 Monkey, Lilne 6 FBV Control and Spider IV Edit, too
  13. **** Sorry. I accidentally posted this twice somehow.**** Hello. Whenever I use Spider IV Edit to make changes in my presets, The changes are not being edited in my amp. The connection is good between the amp and the PC, the software recognizes my amp, my amp has latest update, etc... I send/recieve the change once it is done but when I shut down the program and disconnect the CAT cable the presets on the amp stay as they were. I have tried looking in the help file and I have looked online and I am just stuck. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. Thanks,(\m/(>.<)\m/) Steven D

  15. Hi, I have a Spider IV 150 HD head and cab. It is about 3 years old, and I've used it for tons of shows. Recently, especially after unloading it after a show, when I plug in my guitar, it acts like it is going to work, then the volume will go off, then come back in short burst lasting no more than a second or two. When I try to hit a note or strum the guitar, it makes a popping sound, but if I hold the note, the volume will act fine for a few seconds, then go off again. This will happen very randomly. I can sit and practice for 2 hours, then it will start acting up and won't work again for a while. Then it will randomly starting working fine again and be fine for days or even weeks. I've been very careful with it when unloading it and using it. Although it has been used in very cold and very hot temperatures. I have some important shows coming up, and don't want this to randomly start happening in the middle of the performance, so was just wondering if there was anything I could do to prevent this. I am going to try a factory reset, but it could be days before I know it this truly worked. Not sure if this matters but the guitars that this has happened with are an ESP LTD EC-1000FR and a Sterling JP-70. Thanks for any help!

  18. I am trying to use a Boss RC-3 looper on a Spider IV 75 amp and the original loop sounds good, by trying to play over it or overdubbing sounds very choppy with reduced volume, Any one have any ideas or comments for me. Thanks alot.
  19. Hi. I need to replace the fuse in my Spider IV 120 - does anyone know exactly which type of fuse is needed? Thanks Brian
  20. Anyone had this weird problem - I use the pitch glide setting to create a dive bomb effect when playing the intro to 'lonely boy' and twice playing it on a local festival stage, the pitch glide has either failed completely (which somewhat ruins the intro!) or has been intermittent. This has never happened in any other rehearsal or gig. The only issue I could come up with is that walkie talkies, which have been used by the stage crews in each instance, may have been causing radio interference with the RJ45 cable connecting my FBV Shortboard to my amp (a Spider IV 150). And because the pitch glide effect requires a non-static or changing signal, from Shortboard to amp, this was somehow failing to be transmitted 'cleanly' along the RJ45 cable. I have now bought a more robust RJ45 which claims to have better insulation from radio interference. Then again we have also now dropped that song from our live set - just in case it happens again! Thoughts/comments/shared experiences anyone....?
  21. So I've been looking around, just trying to get some wireless gear, and I'm thinking, "Wouldn't it be nice if you can make everything wireless on an amp?" So I was wondering, since I'll need the money for a wireless guitar system, if there is any sort of way that you would connect the FBV pedals, I'm using the Express, to the Spider amps without the use of an RJ45 cable? Like the wireless receivers? It would be really neat, but I don't want to be stupid and buy things that were never going to work. Thanks, guys.
  22. I have an aging Peavey Special 212 with a zoom g9.2tt for my effects, that is starting to develop problems as my backup amp. I have decided on Line 6 as my new backup amp. However I am torn I have a pretty nice main rig but for smaller venues and nights I feel lazy enough not to lug a 412. My 2 choices right now are the Spider IV 150 212 and the Spider Valve 212. I have tried both in store and was impressed by both but since I was attempting to be mindful of those around me I couldnt give either a proper test. Any feedback from anyone familliar with both models? Also I have a nice assortment of speakers at my house I was wondering if swapping the speakers voided warranty.
  23. Hi - I am looking for a certain tone and can't seem to get it out of my Line 6 Spider IV - the following songs are lost on me: - Black Dog - Led Zeppelin - Midnight Rambler - Rolling Stones - LIVE (Get Yer Yayas Out CD best example) - lead and rhythm - Sympathy for the Devil - Rolling Stones - LIVE (Get Yer Yayas Out CD best example) - lead and rhythm - Remedy - Black Crowes Does anyone know these settings? Any help or similar 'sound' settings is appreciated. Thanks much! Steve
  24. Just thought I'd start things out here (and see if my post count still exists!) I've got a Spider IV 75, had it for almost 3 years now, along with an FBV Mk2 Express pedal. I also use PodFarm 2.55 and have used both for all the electric guitar (and most bass) tracks on my upcoming CD, available in the next few months.
