Bass Mini keeps powering off whilst playing. What could the problem be?



  • Hi all,

    Grateful for any insights. Bought a new Positive Grid Bias Mini Bass a few months ago. Using it live with a Hartke 1000 watt 4x10 (4 x 250 watt HyDrive Neodymium Hybrid cone drivers, 1000w RMS Power Handling @ 8 ohms, dual chamber sealed cabinet design).

    Problem - It powers off intermittently. Can turn it straight back on, it goes for a while and turns off again randomly. Doesnt seem to be overheating. Haven't got it dimed out (vol around 7-8)) Firmware version 0.1.2.151

    Thanks to anyone who might be able to help with this issue.

    @urbancoyote Have you tried it on a different cab? Note that the MINI Bass is 150 watts at 8 ohm, and the power protection might be activated when overloaded.
