DT25 vs. PowerCab?
scottwilliams posted a topic in DT50 / DT25This is probably coincidence, but have had 2 issues lately that seem potentially related to using helix with the DT25. First, my helix lost all output shortly after connecting to DT25 (which was sounding great BTW). Luckily have the extended warrantee on helix and that was repaired and has seemed fine for a month or so now. Have since tried the DT25 on 2 gigs and was fine. today was trying some new settings on helix (in particular playing with the DT25 Class A, class A/B and pentode/triode options, which are a great feature) ... was playing a bit after making adjsutments and then there was a volume drop and I heard a little 'static' then the amp died.. no power light, no sound. Speaker protection fuse was fine. Questions: 1. I have seen some threads indicating that tubes could cause problem... if it's just tubes, would power still not even come on? Should I just try new tubes first? 2. I'm assuming that if I take in for service, could be $300 roughly, which isn't awful, but wondering if anyone has compared the sound and feel of the DT25 with the Powercab? 3. Is there any reason to think that the powercabs might play more nicely with helix than DT25? any reason to think powercabs would be any more reliable than DT25? Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you!
Powercab 112 and Helix: Speaker / IR Settings and PreferencesI'm new to both of these units. I've set up some patches on the Helix with no speaker or IR; using the Greenback setting on the Powercab. Sounds good, but... What about using the Flat Response on the Powercab 112 with selected speakers / IRs on the Helix? Preferences, Pros and Cons...? NOTE: I'm referring to the Powercab - not the Powercab Plus
