I bought a Pro Bass 300 off of Ebay really cheap. (yes, I know; you get what you pay for!) It looks like it is brand new, but it doesn't work very well. For the first minute or two, it sounds great. After that, it goes into super-distortion mode. The thing sounds like it has pulverized the speakers. If you stop playing for just a minute, it goes back to normal sound, for a minute or two.

I contacted Carvin and they looked, but couldn't find any manuals or schematices for this model. On this site (Carvin Museum), they have manuals and schematics for the Pro Bass 300/500, but that is not the model I have. From this site, I found that is was produced from 82-86. http://www.carvinmuseum.com/decade/82-bassamps.html

On the back, this amp says it puts out 300w at 2 ohms or 175 watts at 4 ohms.

Would it hurt this amp to connect it to an 8 ohm cabinet?

Does anyone have a manual with schematics for this Pro Bass 300?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Sounds like you have the same amp as me, and I've had no luck at getting any info on this model. Good luck.
