I'm loosing my freaking mind here. After a long battle with Ashdown ABM 500's clipping all to piss and back I've finally gotten one that doesnt clip (much). I run it thru a Schroeder 410. I'm in a metal band and my guitarists use a real middy / crunchy sound, so I feel like I want to push alot of low end to fill it out, but I boost the 340 Hz slider a bit for some burp on on the faster stuff.... problem is, the whole thing falls apart and the the rig starts crapping itself before I can get enough volume from it to hear anything I'm playing unless I'm standing directly in front of it and no more than a few feet away...... BUUTTT when we play live the rig SMOKES. Any room, big or small..... it sounds so huge my guitrists complain and nag like little girls they cant hear the kick drum, they cant hear each other.... but in rehearsal when Noone else is playing, I'm plucking along thinking to myself I cant beleive how quiet this rig is!! I mean it sounds like a 200 watt amp thru a 210.... seriously, if I'm running this thing so hot it will clip if I hit the low B sharply, and I walk to the other side of the room, I cant even hear it..... as soon as the rest of the guys start playing.....I'm gone. Just to test I turned the volume knob all the way off halfway thru a song and nobody noticed. I played another song totally incorrectly on purpose and asked if anybody liked my changes, and everyone said they didnt notice anything amiss.... here are my settings: EB MM SR5: Bass - very slight boost, Mid - slight bump, Treble - flat ABM 500: Preshape disengaged, Bass at about 2 o'clock, 180hz slider flat, 340 hz slider boosted slightly, middle cut to about 10 o'clock, 1.2 khz boosted slightly, 2.4khz slider flat, treble flat. Input gain to where good B string notes are still safely out of the red zone on the VU meter, volume knob at noon. Anything more than this and the amp clips. Quiet as a mouse. is 575 watts just not enough?
