    I just got a 800 watt cabinet and 800 watt head brand is mark bass , the head is mark bass 3 model . I had a gig this past Saturday and it started lightly humming during the show I though it might be the wireless hookup buts it's not now I'm wondering if I clipped or blew a speaker out , would a 1200 watt cabinet help with the. 800 watt head from clipping I'm thinking about buying one

    The hum is coming from your amp. Speakers don't do that by themselves. It probably was interference picked up by your bass. Probably nothing to worry about.

    To determine the source of the hum:
    Turn your bass' volume knob all the way down. If the hum leaves, it's the bass. If not, it's the amp.
