This Peavey Max 700 I have clips quite a bit. Is this a common trend among Peavey bass heads? It seems to me that many threads regarding clipping involve Peavey. I don't want to damage my speakers. Would getting a head with more headroom be the only solution? My gain is usually set at 12 o clock, and my master is set at 12 o clock. I also have my on board pre amp volume at about half. Would something like this http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/g=bass/search/detail/base_pid/155023/ fix my problem?? I would imagine that it wouldnt, since I already have an on board pre amp...but I just want to clarify.
