Default Re: EL8A-HP help needed


first, thanks for the response/help.

the tube is set up low level (with rca plugs). the two harnesses do match (i checked before starting). one side note; the new harness is much better than the original as it has shrink tubing around the base of the wires (that connect to the harness itself) which, i assume, keeps the wires from pulling out of the harness. that was what had happened w/ my black ground wire (due to the tube moving). i had just pushed the ground wire back into the harness and tried to even solder to keep it in place, but it would keep popping back out. when the ground stayed in; the tube would work (but of course, after a while it would just come loose again due to car & tube movement).

that was why i finally just said the heck w/ it and bought a new harness.. haha

i'm going to try to pull the amp out this weekend to check connections and if anything is loose internally. what should i look for specifically?
