Genalex Gold Lion 12AX7

Anybody here every use these, specifically in your Orange? Worth the hype? Did you use gold pin or standard pin?

Re: NAD tomorrow

I believe he's talking about a rogue wire that was touching a tube - highly unlikely to of happened again. You never know. I acquired two duds from Orange within 3 months of each other. I figured its better to be safe than sorry. Got the RV but haven’t unpacked yet. Will do so on Friday. Played it ...

Re: NAD tomorrow

If the RV doesn’t work out I might look for a R30 but would be supremely bummed if the RV isn’t everything I expect it to be. In fact it better be!! Lol Make sure to inspect the amp through the vents on the top and back to make sure there are no wires touching the tubes. I don't want to be that guy...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Get a refund and get a used RV50 MKII. You said you wanted a mid knob and to rid your life of those pesky notches. I would love that but this whole nightmare started with a used MKII. The dealer suggested sending the amp to their repair center. I told them I'd send it but to also alert me to what t...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Thanks for all the advice, guys. I just emailed the dealer. We'll see what they say about it.

I don't think I trust them to repair it. They botched repairing my MKII twice. I'd rather have full on replacement.

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Wow..... that's pretty bad. I can't believe how unlucky you are here.... :) At least now you know what needs to be sorted. That sucks donkeys balls. Thanks man. I tell you I am freakin' stupefied here. I have always been unlucky with amps. Probably why I stopped buying new ones 12 years ago and jus...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Really crappy dude. Sounds like that retailer you have been using is a bit sketchy (same place as your last head right?). I would just send the head back and look for something else at another store. Tell them the full story and you should have any trouble with a refund. Thanks, man. I just can't b...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

So I just discovered something horrible. I don't know how much of this could possibly play into my tonal issues, BUT for the first time since receiving the RV MKIII head, I turned it around to inspect the tube glow, thinking preamp tubes could be an issue, only to find this wire seemingly coming fro...

Is that what I SHOULD have? Or is that what I have based on my picture?

Appreciate your response.

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

The top 2 speakers are in series. The bottom 2 speakers are in series. The 2 pairs are connected in parallel. Phase is all correct. 16 ohms total with four 16 ohm speakers. Normal, correct, fine. One of the several ways to do series/parallel. Thank you for looking. That's disconcerting. I still fee...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

I would rip the back of my PPC412 myself, but my office is soo jammed up I can't pull it out more than a few inches from the wall. I might also try emailing Orange support again. They should be able to sort you out in a matter of moments with a proper wiring diagram. I'm on my 7th Orange product, 5...

What ohms are your speakers?

I'm not convinced the wiring diagram were looking at would give you 16ohms if replicated in your cab.
Each speaker is 16 Ohms. There is a sticker on the side of the magnet indicating it.

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Actually I think you are missing a wire! http://music-electronics-forum.com/attachments/3848d1229590462-series-parallel.jpg Flip that upside down and you will see what I mean. The top orange cable should be going to the bottom, and there should be another one doing the same on the right side. I thi...

Re: RV50H MKII Problems (Long story)

Thank you for looking. Yeah, it looks overdone to me just based on the little research I've done.
