    hey i have a question... when i play, i occasionally boost my lows and cut highs for a big, muddy, room-shaking noise. I like the sound but when i do this i can feel a breeze coming out of my cabinet. This isn't like a vibration from the sound, it just feels like wind coming out of my Cabinet. Is this safe? The megoliath is ported in the front and the back, so it seems like it would be possible to set up a wave that sucked in the back port and blew out the front, but i don't know this for sure. Anyone have similiar experiences or know what's going on?

    That good ol' pants-flappin breeze. As long as you're not getting distortion, it's not only OK, it's desireable!

    Yeah buddy!

    Nothin' better than backing up close to your amp during a performance and getting a chill from the wind coming from the ports:D


    If it WASN'T ported, I think there might be a sligh cause for concern, but since it's ported its designed to do that.
