    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?

    (also does anyone know what footswitch to use with it, at the moment when I use the morley fsw I have one of the 2 EQ doesn't work...)

    thanks in advance.
