    I got a Mesa Powerhouse 2x10 about 10 months ago, and I don't have a clue what the Horn Protect reset switch does. I figured I should ask because I get the feeling it might be important and the only information i could find on the net was acknowleging that it exists, but never explains what it does. Thanks in advance.

    I suspect it's a circuit breaker that trips when you try to put too much current through the horn. The reset button is to reset the breaker and allow sound to pass through the horn once more. Good idea - better than having to change a bulb/fuse.
