Your main problem was using a stereo speaker, it's not suitable for bass guitar at all - and if you blew the amp it's probably because the speaker died, or was the wrong impedance.

Default Bogen CT100 schematic

Hi folks, I'm looking for a schematic for the Bogen CT100 pa amp. I saw your post vintagekiki saying you have one but I can't email you yet because I am new here. Let me know if I can get it from you.

you could probably easilly mod the amp to accept a high impedance might be as easy as changeing the input resistor to a 1m or 2m.....
you could also plug your guitar into a DI and then into one of the mic inputs to match impedances....

Just a thought....

heya I likewise have a bogen CT-100... I got it for free and used it for a guitar amp a few times... I was rocking out one day at a very high volume and I noticed there was smoke pouring out of those vent things on the top... I dont know if Ive had a look of such pure joy on my face as I did that day... not that I like trashing equipment... but smoke coming from your amp is just too badass... anyway I took the top off of it and poked around... I guess a capacitor had leaked and some of the wires were smoking the capacitor juice when it was sitting on the bottom of the inside of the amp... anyway I yanked the capacitor and I need to replace it... would a schematic tell me what I need to know? The capacitor has some specs and numbers on it but I have no idea what to look for... I googled some of the stuff, but again, I dont know what to look for... can someone help me? Do I just take it to radio shack or one of those big electrical supply stores?

Try typing the numbers off it here, and if you can, post a picture of it.

Hi there- I'm new to the forum and a neophyte in electronics..

I just recieved the Bogen c 100 c amp, and it's output is drastically reduced.. both mic inputs are at same level, but must turn the gain all the way up and 'eat' the mic for anything Close to a program level to output.. what could cause such a drastic drop in level, and what/how should I check? I've found a schematic @
which covers the 'c 100 c' ..
