  1. i have a ?i have the carvin pb 100 15inch combo hooked up to a 4x10 cab.when i turn it up all the way it sounds like i have a overdrive pedale. the 15 inch s only getting 50 watts and the 4x10 is only getting 50 i know i am not putting to much power in to it. is it because the amp is cranked. is it because i am just overdriving the head or some thing
  2. Sounds like you are clipping your amp which can damage your speakers. Turn down or use less EQ boost. Square waves are bad!
  3. what is clipping if i get a power amp would i be able to be louder with a clean sound
  4. You need more power to get more headroom. 100w is not enough power to drive your speakers without clipping your amp.
