Hey guys Im here lookin for some info that I just can't seem to grasp. I just recently blew out my midrange driver on my Acme B-4 powered with an Eden NA-600 (450W @ 4 Ohms). Ive been told its because I was overloading my signal, that my amp was clipping and it didnt have enough juice to power the cab. Now as many of you may know, the Acme series are power mongers so I guess the volumes I need to play at with my current amp are not practical, being that its not capable of that much. Now heres the question part - A) how do you not overload a signal, is it turning down on your bass, turning down your gain on the amp, or turning down the volume on your amp, or something else? B) I understand that if your have a 1000W amp and volume at 12oclock it can still produce 1000W not 500W, how is this so? C) Whats the best way with the combination of cab,bass,and amp to produce the cleanest sound without any clipping. Thanks alot in advance guys, I love this place.
