Hello I've been experiencing intermittent issues with my Spider IV HD150 recently. I don't use the amp for shows or at high volumes so I don't understand how I came across this problem. Been doing research and apparently it could be the DSP chip in the main board overheating? But I don't understand how that's possible if I'm just using it for bedroom projects and practice? It's updated to the latest firmware and I checked the cables and everything looks good. I even switched out guitars thinking that would solve it but same issue. Could it be the weather causing this? I live in socal and it has been getting extremely humid and hot recently. Could it just be wear because of how old the amp is? I know you're not supposed to service these amps yourself but I'm just curious what causes the problem and if there's any way I can prevent something from my end. Any help and guidance is appreciated thank you.
I have a Spider IV HD150, I want to use the Line Out/Phone directly to my DAW to record. Do I need to disconnect the speaker outputs running to the cabinet before I do this, or is it OK to just connect the Line Out when I want to record? I understand that it will mute the cab speakers with the line out plugged in, that is fine, just don't want to damage anything in the head by leaving the speaker connected and I cannot find anything that says for sure it is OK.
