alright...so i got my qsc rmx 1450. i have it set up for bridged use, and with the speakon wired correctly. since i'm broke right now, i'm using my bddi as a preamp. now i know they don't have enough output voltage (correct term?) to push a power amp to its fullest power, but i get enough to get by until i get a preamp. so for practice i run the power amp knob around 3 o'clock. an the bddi, i have the level all the way up, and the blend around 3 or 4 o'clock. treble is at 11 o'clock, bass at 1 or 2 o'clock, drive at 1 o'clock, and presence at 12 o'clock. this is how i like the sound the most, but at the levels we play at, i've had problems with bad clipping on certain notes. so i turned the level on the bddi down, kept the bass alittle lower, and dropped the drive alittle. this really helped, but i wasn't really as loud as i would have liked to be. so my question is this. even though the bddi doesn't have the same output voltage as say, an svp pro, could it still cause a power amp to go into severe clipping with certain settings? i'm using a passive mia jazz and an svt 8x10. anyway...let me know what you all think.
