Technical Discussion / Re: Should I replace my potentiometers?

I'm not sure what value pots you'll need, you'll have to look at them, but Amp Repair Parts carries replacement pots for Orange Amps.

Technical Discussion / ORANGE CRUSH 20 EXT SPKR JACK & SPKR SWAP
« Last post by GearHead63 on December 29, 2020, 07:52:33 PM »
So I got me an Orange Crush 20 a few months ago. I've been using it mostly for recording into my DAW (works very well).
But I noticed that the sound quality coming from the headphone jack was quite a bit better than the stock speaker,
which is pretty dark sounding. The headphone out has a pretty flat frequency output.
I wanted to be able to run an external 12" speaker in a cab, but it doesn't come with any external speaker jack.
So I punched two 1/2" holes into the chassis, I inserted a 6-lug on-on push button switch and a 1/4" mono jack.
I clipped the spade ends off the cable going to the speaker and wired it to the switch (center lugs), wired the 1/4" jack to the switch and installed new speaker wires to the speaker. Now you can only run it with an 8 ohm speaker, and can use the internal or external speaker. But not both of them. just push the switch and pick which one you want!
Then I looked around for a different 8 inch speaker. I wanted something with fairly flat response, better sensitivity (louder),
and better bass response.
Decided to chance it and bought a Rockville RM88PRO, 8 inch, 8 ohm speaker, which is actually an automotive audio speaker. Paper cone, pleated paper surround, large dust cap. $29 including shipping!
It is LOUDER, has more bottom and top end, and can easily handle being cranked to 10.

Here's the basic specs:
1.5 High Temperature CCAR Voice Coil
90oz. Magnet
Frequency Response:  88Hz - 6KHz
Sensitivity:  108dB @ 1w / 1m
It actually reproduces down to around 30Hz, and up to about 10kHz.
Took me about an hour total time to do the speaker jack mod and replace the speaker. I also ran pink noise through the amp, measuring the headphone out response, the stock speaker and the RM88PRO.
Don't pay any attention to the db levels, I was only trying to check frequency response. As you can see the headphone out is really flat! the stock speaker drops off on the low and high frequencies, and the Rockville speaker KILLS!

So, I have an Orange Rocker 32 with scratchy volume potentiometers.  I have cleaned the pots with contact cleaner - but the scratchiness eventually comes back.   Perhaps replacing the pots would be a better fix?   If so are there any recommendations (part numbers to use)?

What was the reason for the overheating connector?
Was it a loose/corroded connection??

Thanks, Terry
They were cheap solderless connectors that weren't making a solid connection. Mine didn't show signs of overheating, but I've seen some that were charred from overheating.

Restlessnative,

If you go to the Orange Site....orangeamps.com.
and go to Support and then to Manuals...
It gives a good idea what can be done with the 1-16 ohm and the
two 8-ohm taps.
the amp isn't Stereo.

I'm going to skip rehearsal and go straight to gigs without actually attending.

That is amazing! You should try a rehearsal and see how it goes!

How do you get added to a band without knowing it?

So, it seems that I've been added to a grunge band without my knowledge or consent.    I'm hoping this person simply has me confused with someone else - otherwise I'll have to confront the situation and say no.
