    It has Contour, and compression buttons, low, low mid, high mid, and high knobs. I know nothing about amps and just want to how this thing should be set up.

    do you have an owners manual?

    I couldn't find one online. the amp looks quite simple. guitar cord in the "input" start with the volume at 7 o'clock position, low,lowmid, highmid, high at 12 o'clock, compression off to start. the amp is only 140w though. for safety of your speaker I'd suggest ALWAYS using the compression.

    oh, here is a user manual for a ha1415 that is your amp with a 15" speaker. page 10 gives tips on EQ usage.
