I have two identical Marshall DSL 100 watt heads. One of them was starting to crackle when I turned up volume on either clean or distortion channels. It finally quit and assumed it was just dust in pod. However a week ago turned amp head on and neither green light for clean channel or red light for distortion channel were coming on and no sound at all from either channel coming coming through speaker cabinet. Trying to get some help on what could possibly be wrong causing me to lose sound from amp head. Thanks
I noticed there is an emulated out on the back of the 20Watt Dsl head. From reading the .pdf manual, I understand that the head needs to stay connected to the speaker cabinet. So I know to never un-hook it, however - My questions being -
Do I need to be in Stand-By mode to actually use the headphones? If not, will the sound still come from the speaker cab?
Also, can I just plug my headphones directly into the Emulated Out? the .pdf manual says the Dsl20 Emulated Out supports Headphones. But I've seen people comment in other places that you need a headphone amp that increases volume or something. I haven't been able to test with headphones yet, and I kinda' wanna' get the right answer on this before I try. Thanks.
Loving the Amp and Speaker cab though haha. Just came in yestreday.
I have 3 combo amps each with a single 16 ohm speaker. baffles the heck out of me why Marshall would recommend a 2x12 8 ohm ext cabinet. I want to run both the internal speaker and the ext cabinet at the same time. I would like to put 8 ohm speakers in the combos to match the ext cabs. I have a JCM 2000 DSL 401, a DSL 40cr And an Origin 1x10 20 Watt. Can a16ohm speaker be upgraded with an 8 ohm speaker in these combos and if so what speakers would you recommend. Any additional suggestions or information is most welcome.
Can you please show me which jack i should use to plug my head into the cabinet. I have a new 2 weeks old, Marshall DSL 20 HR Head with the MX212RR Marshall cab. On the back of the head it has 3 jacks for to plug into the cabinet and i dont know which is the best. It has lines pointing to the OHM's but the lines dont line up with the different ohms and its hard to tell which one to use. Anyway of sending me a picture or explaining which jack i should use please. Ive looked every where, youtube, online googled and cant find any info on which jack to use from thr back of the head to plug into the speaker cabinet. Thank you
WARNING: When using the DSL1HR head
for ‘silent’ practice or DI recording ALWAYS
disconnect the speaker cabinet from the
amplifier’s rear panel before switching on.
NEVER unplug the speaker cable from the
speaker cabinet while it is still connected
to the amplifier rear panel. This may stress
the amplifier’s power-stage and in extreme
cases may lead to valve and/or transformer
Can i use an emulated out with the cab speaker plugged in?
Manual says "Connect a single speaker cabinet here for the DSL1HR head". Is it means I can't use cabinet with two 8ohm speakers in series?
Which speaker jack is for the 8 ohm, the one in the very center or the one next to the 1x16 where the cabinet pluggs in? Their are 5 jacks, so counting from left to right which one is the 8 ohm jack ? Thank you.
Thanks for Your response, but i wanted To insist that popping Is not produced by the buttom, it is through The MX 212a speaker's cabinet, i have compared To other amps DSL And don't have this problem. Please help me..
Hi - my first post - hoping someone can help me.
I have a 1998 DSL100 along with a 1960A and a 1936 cabinet. Typically I use one cab or the other, but I'd like to try using both cabs, but am not sure about matching the impedance.
The DSL head has the 3 outputs - 1 dedicated to 16 ohm and 2 that can do either 4 or 8 ohms along with the 4/8 switch.
The 1960A cab can do either 4 or 16 ohms in mono, or 8 ohms in stereo.
The 1936 cab can do either 8 ohms in mono or 16 ohms in stereo.
It doesn't look to me like I can use both cabs at the same time, but maybe I'm not completely understanding it. Is there a way to hook up both cabs to head??
The right hand input on the 1960A says it's 16 ohm mono or 8 stereo, whereas the 1936 is the opposite and is 8 ohm mono and 16 ohm stereo. Can I go from the 4/8 outputs on the head to the right hand input on both cabs - will this work without causing damage?? If I can, do I set the DSL head to 4 or 8 ohms, and should the switch on the 1960A be mono or stereo?
Thanks - I appreciate your brain power lol!!
I use a Marshall DSL 40 C and i would like to have an extension with one Marshall 1960 AV.
On the Marshall 1960 AV , connections are : -1 x 4 ohm imput or 8 ohms right
- 1 x 16 ohms imput or 8 ohms left
- a selector for Mono or Stereo
I read that he DSL40C can drive either 1x16 ohms ,1x8 ohm or 2x 16ohm cabinets.
My questions are :
Can I use the internal speaker and the external cabinet together ? . I know that to use only the DSL 40 C , the connection is on the 1 x 16 ohms socket.
I have only one cabinet , which selector position is correct ? Mono or stereo.
Which connections are correct ?
Thanks for your help .
