ok, i'm having some volume problems with my rig and I really don't want to blow anything, so I'm kind of curious, maybe I can get some advice on what I can do to maximise the power of my rig for effective volume? (especially at practice, guitarist and drummer claim to have problems hearing me at all times) my setup is thus: bass -> eden WT400 ->(effects loop effects processor -> DOD EQ -> Behringer compressor (left channel) -> WT400 (effects in) I use one WT400 amp out to go to an Eden D115 (8 ohms, rated at 200 watts) the direct out on the eden goes to the right channel on the compressor, which then feeds to a Mackie 2600FR power amp (this is so that I can use the power amp, and still have an XLR output from the compressor free for direct in when playing shows) the mackie 2600FR goes to an Eden 410XLT (8 ohms, rated at 700 watts), which I just use one channel one the 410XLT powered by the mackie is barely louder than when it's being powered by the WT400, and I'm guessing it's because I'm only using one channel on the mackie? I'd like to use the other channel on the mackie, but the D115 is only rated for 200 watts, and I don't want to overload it from the Mackie, btu I find my WT400 poweramp clipping a lot at a distinguishing volume for the 115, and I'm afraid I will eventually blow it that way. Can anyone give me some decent recommendations? I was thinking of trying to replace my D115 with a 118XLT rated at 500 watts or so, then powering both through the mackie, but I'm kind of curious... if I got 2 cabs that were both rated at 4 ohms, would they be louder than the 8 ohm cabs? I know the mackie can deliver more wattage to them that way, but is that just because there's more resistance, therefore the actual volume would remain the same? Or would my best bet for more volume to be to switch to 4 or even 2 ohm cabs? (Mackie can deliver 1000+ watts per side to 2 ohm cabs, so the instructions say, without any problems) thanks a lot for any help. i've been kinda just bandaiding this a lot, but I want to be able to get the tone I want at the volume I want.
