Question about Amp Power and Relative Sound
I'm about to pull the trigger on an amp for my pair of Aggie DB 112's. Here is my question:
If you have a cab(s) that are rated at about half the peak wattage of your amp, you are obviously going to be able to drive it well. But what happens if you are unable crank the amp and want to play it at low volumes? Are you able to get a good sound at very low volumes or do you need to generally push the amp volume knob past a certain point in order to get *that* ideal sound? Do you need to push the output of the amp into a specific territory or will it perform as well at a lower (very low) level?
All things being equal, would an amp generally sound better pushed but not maxed, or a much higher power amp set at a lower level?
I only play out at temple once a week or less and would use the amp at home more until I get practicing/playing out with my band.
