    Hi Folks,

    Today I received the wgs black and blue speaker to upgrade my AC15.

    Everything went well, and the amp works fine.

    However, when I try to use the external speaker-> attenuator -> speaker I get no sound whatsoever.

    Cables fine, attenuator fine, speaker is fine.

    What gives? How can I fix this?

    Interesting,

    so after more digging, it seems when I have two speaker cables connected to the new WGS speaker, one pair doesn't get a signal.

    I'm lost, as I've done this on my two other amps, and the greenback that used to be in the AC15.

    Why would the WGS speaker give no sound on one pair of spades, if the other is connected?

    Have you checked to make sure that all of the spade connections are passing signal to the WGS without the extra items hooked up? Possibly a bad wire from one of those to the voicecoil

    I can put the amp in either spots, or the feed from the attenuators in either spot.

    hook both up, no signal on the external no matter which pair of spades I connect it on, and have the amp on the other.
