    I've got an ampeg B4R and am about to aquire an ampeg Svt410hlf. If I bridge the amp at 4 ohms then i'll end up with 1000 watts of power. I'm around stupid kids a lot and if one of them turns the amp up all the way they're going to put my damn cab in orbit. I thought i could just use one side of the amp (350 watts) but i've been told that just running one side can damage the amp. What should I do to either reduce output or keep it from being able to put out the full 1000 watts?

    That 4x10 ought to be able to handle 1000 watts peak. If you're really worried, running one side of the amp isn't bad for the amplifier, its designed to run that way so you can bi-amp the system.
