Hi, this morning i made a really big mistake by connecting a powersoak to my DT25/112: I linked the 8Ohms output of the Amp to the output of the ps and the 16 ohms speaker to the input of the ps. The ps was switched to 16 ohms. So i did everything wrong what i could :huh: (never play guitar or connect amps before the first coffee) and played a while with mastervolume nearly at 100% and the ps reducing to moderate room level. This worked for about 5 minutes (i wondered a bit about the relativley harsh sound), than there was no sound anymore and i started to detect my mistake. After turning off the amp and switching on again after a while, it worked some minutes without any problem but than again - no more sound at all - just a very light hum. No, now all connection are ok, ich checked twice ;) I finally measured what i've done - so i used the amp at full power at a load of about 0.7 ohms DC at the 8 ohms output. I understand that i've blown away my amp cause i was stupid but i don't understand why it works normally for some minutes? When the sound stops, i can't hear something of interest like a relay or something - it just stops sounding. Has anybody an idea? Thanks a lot and sorry for my english, i'm still learning Michael
