I think all of us having trouble contacted Pat.The response wasnt to help the problem,or even figure out what the problem was. I was(for what ever reason) playing at 10 master and 7-8 gain in my living room. ,,The Quilter email said "Don't be afraid to turn it up"

Richard, my Steelaire is a great amp. From what you stated I think they best correct your problem. Can you call and speak with someone who can correct it? I didn’t realize that guys were having these kind of problems. This Forum is very powerful and I believe they best correct the problem on the faulty amps or stop producing the Steelaire because sales are going to virtually stop. I also have two Quilter mini heads and they have plenty of power. I think you or someone should show this thread to Quilter. They need to know that they have an important business decision to make.
This is great news for Peavey, Telonics, Little Walter and Milkman!
Jerry

Jerry, made contact with Quilter, Pat suggested that I just crank it up, despite telling him it was already cranked up, Chris Park did not reply to my email. I believe Quilter are well aware of the problem, just choosing not to do anything about it, so believe it is a waste of time contacting them yet again. I again make the point that the tone is great, and up until the point I contacted them with the problem the customer service had been good, and I am deeply disappointed that not one single person from Quilter contacted me to say sorry you are having a problem, what can we do to sort it out. Needless to say no more Quilter gear for me, a total waste of $900 for an amp that struggles on even moderate volume gigs.

At home, I play in a pretty large open living/dining/kitchen area. With the Gain and Master set on 5 on either Channel 1 or Channel 2, I have too much volume pedal left to dump it. I alternate between Hiltion and Goodrich Omni volume pedals. If I select both channels and dime the Master, I have to turn the Gain WAAYYY down on both channels. I have found that I like the tone with the Master and Gain set pretty close to the same.

I have only been running CH2 only (pre on 5 and master on 5) After reading this post, it appears that I should try to use CH 1 & Ch 2 together. I am running a Mullen G2 D-10 (BL-705) into the Quilter Steelaire Rackmount and a 12" Eminence PF-350 in an open back cab. Also, using a Telonics volume pedal. It sounds fantastic.

The pedals I am using in the EFX loop:
Peterson Stombostomp > TC Electronics Nova Delay >
TC Electronics Nova Delay

I recently sold my Steelaire rack amp and EPS-15C speaker to finance buying a new Steelaire Combo. I wasn't happy with the too bright sound of the combo. I thought it was just the new speaker needed a break in until I had a correspondence from Pat Quilter about the speaker. The Quilter speaker is based on the Eminence EPS-15C but "voiced" to have more high frequency response. Thus accounts for it sounding too bright.

I replaced the stock speaker with an EPS-15C and immediately it was a major improvement over the too much bright sound, even though the EPS-15C was new and not broken in. My EQ settings are nearly back to what I had with the Steelaire Rack/EPS-15C combo, and I expect as the EPS-15C gets broken in I will be back to their settings.

I find the sound of my Steelaire to be thin, tin-like. I have George L pickups on my Mullen D-10.
Would other pick-ups provide a fuller, warmer sound? If so, which ones?
Thanks,
Jim

I had the same issue with my pre RP. I had E66 and it was too tinny for me. I switched to a Lawrence 705. Much happier
