How careful are you with your tweeter?
I use a Markbass LMT800 and a Traveler 151p cab, and I guess I get a little bit of tweeter anxiety. I generally like to play with my tweeter cut (on the cab) at 0dB for a more crisp, defined tone with my Jazz.
Recently, though, and especially since I got a used Boss ME-6B off the classifieds here on TB, I've been really nervous about blowing out my tweeter. Sometimes when I get a really sweet fuzz effect or a crisp, clean chorus going, it feels like that little piezo tweeter is putting out an awful lot of sound. I've heard a few horror stories of the tweeter on the Markbass Traveler cabs going bad, and it kinda freaks me out.
Right now I keep it at about -5dB unless I'm gonna be playing completely clean all night. I don't like the tone quite as much. It's not horrible; it's still my favorite setup ever. Am I being stupid/paranoid? Do you ever worry about your tweeter blowing when you play with a bright tone?
(Also, would I be stupid to play guitar through this setup at low volumes without turning off the tweeter entirely? What's your experience?)
