    Just wondering if anyone would know why my amp would be peaking at low output. I have a behringer bx3000t. I'm running a full stack. It's quite annoying. TIA.

    The light under the output knob blinks red and the sound is distorted once that happens.
     
  4. Tell us about the rest of your setup. Bass, which one? Active (changed the battery recently?) or passive? Pedals? Wireless?
    What are the settings on your amp? Help us to help you.

    Is there an input gain as well as an output gain? The peak light may be the input stage (is probably the input stage) and not the output stage.

    I just checked a picture of the front of your amp. The light is labeled "limit", not "peak". It just means it's engaging the limiter circuit. And this amp being a Behringer means that you shouldn't expect things to make sense or work correctly (though from what I understand this guy sounds pretty good).

    Turn down the gain knob until it stops happening.
