Re: problem with jsx cabinet...

well if it is buzz make sure all of your cables are good. Make sure you have a high quality speaker cable and not an instrument cable connecting the head and cab. also make sure that you have your ohm rating matched up.

If it is a rattle or similar sound it may be the cab or speakers. Usually there isn't much that can go wrong with speakers short of being blown or having the cone damaged.

If you can check the amp with another cab, try a different guitar, and even different set of tubes if the problem still persists.

Be systematic about find the problem by eliminating every possible thing you can.
