Clipping issues

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by harley_ou812, Jan 29, 2002.

  1. I have a SUNN Alpha four PA head and whenever I play anything through it even at a low level it clips. I am wondering what may be causing this and if there is anythingi that I can do to fix this? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A bass puts out a hotter signal than a microphone. You are probably overloading the mike preamp in the unit.

    Turn the volume down on your bass.

    Also don't go boosting the crap out of the bass EQ.
