Default Camco DX24 clipping

Hi
I need some help in sorting out this problem with my CAMCO DX24 power amp. With the signal and speakers plugged into both channels, Channel 1 has no problem, even with the volume set to maximum. But channel 2 seem to clip with the volume set to just above half way. There seem to be no distortion in sound, but it just clips at random. Can someone assist as what could be the problem.

Thanks

Generally, clipping implies that there is distortion, as you would expect from a truncated (clipped) waveform. Do you mean to say that the volume level through channel 2 reduces randomly instead?

Is the amp set to Bridge mode by mistake perhaps? If not there is probably something wrong with the amp, the speaker cables or the speakers.

Thanks Ian and Conanski, the clipping was too short a period to recognise distortion. I opened up the amp and detected a diode connected to the emitter of the power transistor has shorted. I replaced it and now it works fine.


Thanks again
