Problem with speaker distortion on THR10c

Unread post by Rekelund » Mon May 20, 2019 1:56 pm

Hi!
I'm new to the forum. Bought my THR10C last year and I have been loving it to bits. However, the last couple of weeks I've noticed that when I set the amp to any kind of overdrive tone the speakers distorts – by this I don't mean the kind of distortion you want with overdrive but rather the kind of distortion you get if you have the levels set to high when you record singing with a mick. I hope you understand what I mean.

I have tried with headphones as well and it is the same, so I'm thinking it is a software problem rather than a problem with the actual speakers.

It is only 10 months since I bought the amp so I still have warranty on the product, but I thought I would turn to you guys first. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Can it be fixed?

Hejsan, welcome to the forum and the string section. :D

Do you only get distorted sounds through the guitar input,
or does this happen when playing music tracks through line input or usb connected to a computer too ?

Best Regards

Thanks for the welcome Peter!

I haven't tried with USB and computer but it works fine playing music through the AUX input. Also, there is no problem when I use a cleaner setting on the amp, even if I turn it up loud. But with overdrive setting I can clearly hear the speaker distort at even low volume.
