I have something really annoying with my CMD151P I use a passive bass and it clips in about 35% of the volume and Gain, they usually the same, is anyone familiar with this? Why does it clip like insanely even when I play softly? Should I ignore that? What can be the damage? This is really making me thing about selling my CMD151P and getting an Ampeg or something like that :scowl: BTW, how can you measure loudness in amplifiers? I know wattage is not really important, what is important?
