    Hi, 

    I'd like to plug the XLR balanced output (post eq) of my BQ500 into a mixing desk (Mackie ProFX16v3), but need to enable 48v phantom power of the desk. 

    Does the amp have a built-in safety to allow that? If not, can I use an XRL to 1/4 cable or another workaround? Or do I absololutly need a DI box? 

    Thanks for your help! 

    Regards,
    Alex

      Dale_M Many thanks for your question, looking at the Mackie it has a global phantom power which activates all input regardless of needing phantom power or not, I cannot see any reference to any conflict caused in the QSG of the BQ500 so I will have to check with the designers and get back to you.

    Hi.
    I've been referred here from your facebook page.
    My bass player has an old BH500 head and something has started rattling around inside. It just sounds like something is working loose. It works OK at present but it worries me!
    Can anyone guide me on removing the chassis from the case to have a look? I don't know whether it's just fixed by the 4 screws or if anything else has to be removed. It seems very firmly fixed! This might stop him from throwing it in the skip!
     
     
    Thanks for any help anyone can give

    I'm a bassist playing small venues from coffee shops to small clubs. I want to get the RH750 for the headroom it provides. 

    However, the cabinets TC Electronic makes only seem to be able to handle 400W and below. I like the "sparkle" of a 12" speaker, but I want the cabinet to be able to handle the load. 

    Any advice is appreciated.

      PedroRodrigues Hi, Michael Please be aware that the RH750 can be used via Speakon to drive any cabinet combination of up to three RS cabinets, in the case of the RS410 only two, or any other cabinet combination with a 4 Ohm minimum load.
      For more information please consult the Manual for the
      If you take this in to consideration at the RS410 that has 600 watts, for more details follow the link https://www.tcelectronic.com/product.html?modelCode=P0CJJ
      You can use a multitude of combinations that will allow you to have much more than 600 watts.

      Nigel67 Hi jbass4. I would advise putting in a support ticket (via Tab at the top of the page) which will get routed through to our parts department. I cannot promise that we will have stock of these particular knobs but it would be the first place to try.

        Nigel67 Hi jbass4, I am very sorry regarding the lack of contact from our spares team and makes me look a fool for telling you to contact them in the first place. Thomann would probably have got the parts from the same team. Do you have the case number please so that I can investigate further. Many thanks.

      jbass4 Does anybody knows how to make the knobs stick to the potentiometers to avoid these to fall again?

        Nigel67 I don't know what the pot shafts are made of or the knobs, as have never seen one, however for the Midas consoles, if we ever had an issue like this with old product we used a copper tape. Sticky on one side to fix to the shaft and then this tightened up the connection between the two parts. The other option to copper tape is putting a small piece of paper across the end of the shaft and then pushing the knob on pushed the paper down the shaft and made a tight fit. I guess its just a cheaper version that the copper tape. If you want something a bit more permanent, then maybe a very small amount of silicon.

    Hello,

    I played my first gig using my brand new BXD15A combo, and it is definitely not 1,000 watts. It's nowhere near 1,000 watts.

    What do I need to do to up my wattage? Do I need to add a cabinet and use the combo as a head? This amp is barley pushing 150 watts and at an outdoor gig, that's not cutting it. 

    Please let me know how I can get the most from this amp.

      Dale_M Hi Martin sorry to hear of this issue, I think it would be best to submit a support ticket as this does not sound normal, please go to support/ +create a care ticket/ Technical

      PedroRodrigues Hi Martin, please be aware that if you have performed a wattage measurement?
      The watts are equal to amps multiplied by volts.
      If you have performed this calculation and the values are very different form the one announce on the specifications document on the picture below, this may indicate an issue on your unit and it requires to be inspected.
      In that case please follow the link below and submit an assistance request so we can assist you with more tools. https://community.musictribe.com/pages/create-new-ticket?type=service%20request

    Hello,

    I recently contacted the after sale and spare part service, to change the knobs of my bass amp RH450 which are cracked.

    Few years ago, I had this issue with cracked knobs and TC Electonics quickly replied to me and send me new knobs (saying these was new design). Unfortunately these new ones broke again.

    I sent message to music tribe. And I get an automatic message saying that the team will « endeavor to respond to me as soon as possible ». With a case number CAS-134743-J8K9N5. A good start.

    Nevertheless, 3 weeks later, I didn’t yet received any reply, knowing I already sent a kind reminder. I'm starting to be a little bit angry.

    Could someone at music tribe or TC Electronic please reply to me about this knobs issue ? How to change them please ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Fabrice

    The URL given in the manual does not lead to anywhere that has toneprints for BH250. Can anyone tell me the correct one? There are no BH250 toneprints at tcelectronic.com/bh250/toneprints, which redirects to https://tcelectronic.com/tonePrints/tonePrint-library.html . Loads of pedals there but no bass amps.
