Good day, just want to make clear, once i had a power glitch (when i turned the amp on, power button was ok, but the channel and sound didn't appear and there was a click sound that at least it tried to) i noticed then that my power cable on the rear panel got loose a little so i set it properly and now always check the cables firstly before playing. There are no problems anymore. So can a loose power cable be a culprit of such behavior? Is it dangerous for an amp? By the way there were no sparks or cracking sounds from the socket.
I have a few questions:
1. A DSL40CR or 100H has 5 output jacks 1x16, 1x8, 2x16, 1x4, 2x8.
Which output do you connect a 4x12 or 4x10 cab?
A friend has a 4x10 cab with 4 Fender V1030 30w 8 ohms speakers. I believe it comes from a Fender Hot Rod Deville. But I have researched and couldnt find an extension cab like this for a Hot Rod Deville online. It doent have a Fender logo plate on it or an info sticker on the back. It must be a clone someone built. Nevertheless it was built good. I opened the back and I didnt check how it was wired.
2. Can you run both speakers together, (4x12 or 2x12 cab with the 1x12 V type speaker it comes with?
3. And if so which outputs are the correct ones to connect.
Someone place help me I dont want fry my amp.
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
Hey guys, not sure if this is the right place to ask this or not but maybe you’ll know the answer or where I can find it.
I’ve got a 100W Marshall DSL Head, not the JCM2000 series one but the series after that, and basically what’s happening is when I’m playing it will every now and then cut out, the channel indicator light will dim and go out along with the volume, this happens fairly regularly. And then just the other day it cut out but the channel light stayed on, with no sound, and I couldn’t change to the other channel. Turning the amp off and then back on “fixed” it but I’m sure it will happen again.
? ? Any suggestions as to what it could be would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for you time. ?
I've finally had time to sit down and play properly with my new Code 25. There is a lot of fun to be had with this thing, however there are a few things that have became apparent with some of the models.
Pre-amp models "50s British" and "OD DSL" have really odd low frequency harmonics. To the point where both these pre amp models are pretty much unusable. The default patches that use these settings are proof of this. To me it appear that its these patches that certain Youtuber's concentrated on when bad mouthing the amp online (and I can understand why). All the models have some amounts of digital artifacts, but these 2 models are unbeleivably bad.
Power-amp model "British Class A" seems too hot to me, not that I have an expert ear, but it is almost impossible to get a clean tone with that power amp regardless of what pre-amp you put in front of it and how low you set the pre-amp gain.
I understand that no modelling is perfect, but in general these 3 models just don't respond the same way as the other models on the amp.
OK. I'm aware that the Code 25 is a low cost practice amp, and I am fully prepared to just pretend these models dont exist and live with the other much better models on the amp. However in the spirit of reporting issues with the potential of improving the product then if these models can be fixed in the next firmware update (if there is one) then that would be great.
have a quick query regarding the footswitch for the jcm 2000 dsl 100
does anyone know if it's latching or momentary type
I would like to use same with a gcx audio switcher to change channels?
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?
Hi there! What can it be, when sometimes i turn on my amp the channels simply don't response, there is no led light and no sound. But when i plug a footswitch out, led and sound start to be functional. So it rarely occurs, but still occurs. Should i worry about it? Footswitch itself works properly by the way.
my name is jason and i have a question. Since a week or so my marshall dsl 40 had very low volume on the ultra gain channel even when i turned all the way up. Normally my ears would explode and my mom would run upstairs. So it makes very low volume on the ultra gain channel. but when i turn my volume up all the way on the classic gain channel while im playing trough the ultra the volume is normal again. This is really weird and i have no idea to fix this please help

Hi Marshall Team,
i was wondering if it is safe to connect the effects loop send to my Behringer interface.
And if so, is it still safe when
1. the cab is not connected
2. the emulated out is not connected
3. i don't send the signal back to effects loop input
I am asking because I want to silently record and use IRs on the preamp sound, like cab simulations, pedals or EQs.
I've read, that the DSL Series has a dummy load, what makes in unnecessery to plug in the cab while using the preamp. Is that correct?
Couldn't find a definite anwer, so I'm asking you guys!
Thanks in advance!
I have a new DSL20CR. When I use emulated out, the signal is only present when the amp is on standby. When I switch the amp to low or high mode, there is no longer any signal on the emulated out. Is that correct?
I got my DSL 20 CR in May 2020 so 6 months ago and recently have noticed that the light underneath the power switch is flickering.
It is now significantly dimmer and a bit annoying not really what you would expect with the quality of a marshall.
Not sure if this is covered by the warranty or if I need to fix it myself.
Any Help greatly appreciated,
Hello, a question about a my marshall dsl 40 cr:
I have noise problems on the od channel (hiss), even when nothing is plugged in,
i've read on a forum this can be Resistors 141 and 148 that cause the problem
is this problem known and is it worth trying to replace these resistors?
Guitar and lead both work fine however my Marshall DSL40 (purchased Dec 2018) has stopped working, all lights work however there is no sound. High power output also makes strange popping/crackling noises when idle, also as of 2 weeks ago the amp would randomly but rarely make a clicking noise when in standby, this stopped a week later but I had previously never ever heard this noise before. The standby also emits a quiet hum.
I'm attempting to discover a channel exchanging pedal for my DSL 100h. The Marshall site says it utilizes the PEDL-90012 which is out of creation. Can I simply utilize something like the MRPEDL91003 or do I have to get the first footswitch? tellthebell
I have a DSL 100h that has been fading in and out and crackling for quite some time. It seems to only happen on the clean channel and makes no difference, if I have my pedal board plugged in or not. I have the fx loop turned off, so I believe that that part of the circuit is out of the equation. I just swapped out the tubes because I suspected the pre amp tubes were bad from some other things I read and still no luck. Has anyone else experienced this?
Which cable should I use to connect DSL Emulated out with an audio interface: mono, stereo, balanced?
