    I have a Mesa M-2000 amp and noticed there is a FET clip LED on the front panel. Does anyone know if that means the FET channel is clipping, OR if the power amp (which is MOSFET) is clipping? I know clipping is inaudible sometimes...and I want to know if I am ruining my voice coils. Thanks!

    I have a M-2000 also and I was wondering the same thing-
    One time I notice that the clip light was flashing whilst
    playing and just rolled back the compression (or one of the dials on that side) and that seemed to fix it.
    Call Mesa and ask them...they're very good about answering all types of MB questions.
