    My cheap, tiny $50 stereo speakers produce a crisper low end punch than my Ampeg 2x10 combo?

    Is it because I need to eq it out to get a crisp punch? Because my amp has no eq (It has a "Style selector", and none of the settings suit my style!), and I might buy one.

    Is it my pick ups? They're MIM J stock. I heard they had farty lows. And yeah, they do.

    (I've never actually played through my stereo, it just seems that it can get nice lows. And my amp, which only one instrument has been played through, can't. What a stupid post!)

    Read up all about it here:

    Loud, Low, Small - Pick Two. Musical instrument speakers are typically upper 90's to 100+ db 1w/1m. HiFi speakers can get low in smaller volumes but often have efficiencies in the low 80 db 1w/1m range. is one MI speaker manufacturer that's chosen the low route at the expense of efficiency - and they're reasonably priced - if you have the power.

    There are a couple of threads going on various aspects of this right now.

    Clarity is the word I was looking for. I used the word crisp, I don't know why. I'm not expecting my amp to be the best sounding piece of gear ever, I was just wondering if I got a 7-band eq/new pups, would it help the clarity of the lows?

    EDIT: BOOMY >:O MY AMP (pick ups?) IS TO BOOMY :( It has lows, they just are too out there and overshadow everything else it seems :( will a 7-band eq fix this?
