    This is another thread related to the recent purchase of an SM900 head from SWR:

    Some of you must have had this problem: I prefer to use my 900w head in bridged mono into my 500w rated ampeg 410 HLF because of the improved headroom and tighter bottom.

    How do I know how loud not to go?

    Or in other terms is there a way to know when you are blowing your speaker BEFORE actually blowing them?

    thanks in advance.

  3. It is difficult to blow a speaker by giving it too much power. More often you will blow them by underpowering them. Use commen sense. Low frequencies will draw more power and make the woofer move more. Get a power conditioner to make the amp run at its appropiate power spec.
