Quote from: DragonBE on November 07, 2020, 12:09:33 PMMy Boss Katana 50W Mk2 has a very weak low end, even with the bass knob at max on different settings.The general review of these amps is that they're powerful, but mine just doesn't seem to produce powerful tones.It's not like I've been spoiled with incredible amps in the past either, being a Marshall MG30, Peavey Bandit 112, Line 6 Spider IV 120, Roland Cube.I've tried tweaking it through USB, but didn't really find anything I liked. It's always lacking that low end.Also I've tried a factory reset (saw somewhere that might work), but to no avail.Does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve on this?Thanks in advance!
Quote from: admin on November 07, 2020, 12:54:34 PMUse Final Global output EQOr Katana Head + Closed Back Speaker Cab = a LOT more low end vs any other Katana Amp But Katana Amps are voiced like a bright 1969 Marshal Plexi (and not like a modern Metal Amp which often drowns out the Bass Player)Same (lack of low end) compliants occur with a genuine 64 Fender Deluxe or Vox AC 30 Amp- most vintage guitar speakers can not reproduce frequencies below 80 hz -and Katana is designed as a Guitar Amp -and NOT a Full range/flat response speaker (like other DSP Modeling Amps often employ.)
Quote from: gumtown on November 07, 2020, 12:54:57 PMPlug in an MP3 player with some bass heavy music, throw over a few blankets over the amp and let the speaker work out for an hour or so.This will relax the stiff suspension of the new speaker.
Quote from: gumtown on November 08, 2020, 11:12:28 AMThe blankets are just to muffle the noise while you wait for the speaker to "break in",others have had similar issues with lack of bottom end, and this method seemed to have helped.
