I just bought an used ampeg ba115hp (200watts), it sounds great but I just compared with an Ampeg ba115 (100watts) and realize that at full volume mine it doesnt even get close to the ampeg ba115 at half volume. why is that? any help would be great!
The HP is most likely operating hard on the limiter if you crank "fully on". The difference between wattages is not a big difference as BassmanPaul said above. Try both units at "half" on the master and report back.
