Ampeg SVP-CL starts clipping after playing for a while

    I purchased an Ampeg SVP-CL pre amp a couple of months ago and I love it. I was using it at a gig last night and it wasn't clipping at the beginning of the gig but it seemed as though as the night went on and things warmed up, it started clipping on almost every note I hit. I play a Spector Euro 4 and, yes, the Tonepump preamp in that thing is ver hot but I have the treble and bass virtually turned all the way down. I do use the input pad as well on the preamp. I was just jamming with it in my house at the same setting and no clipping. Very weird. Anyone else experience something like this? Maybe it's the bass on board preamp.

    Any advice?
