    I'm switching from a combo to a rack configuration and was wondering how to know if the speaker is being harmed? Will the amp's clip light when the speaker is being harmed or should I just look for lots of movement by the cone? Thanks in advance.
     
  2. 8 billion decibles, but nothing less. I would suggest an SWR working man series stack complete with 810s and a whopping 22inch subwoofer all driven by a giant 750 watt head.:D
     
  3. You need one of these. And a lot of speakers.

    it's only too loud if it makes you unable to hear... otherwise, keep turning up that volume knob please.
