    i recently bought an ampeg b100r (15 inch speaker 100 watts) and i'm in a band. the other 2 guitairists run through 4x12's so i turn up, but when i get to the desired tone/level, it will constantly be peaking. will the peaking break my little friend?

    I paid for all my gear myself. Well, me and MasterCard.
    Either you need a LOT more power, or your guitarists need to turn it down - and we all know how much guitar players like to turn it down...

    Get a bigger amp or a new band is my advice. Your choice.

    place your amp aganst a wall, hopefully yuor practice space has wood walls if so this should make you more audibul. by vibrateing your sound through the walls.
     
  5. To answer your question......

    Sending a clipped signal to the speaker continuously will fry that thing in no time flat.

    Get a bigger amp before you damage the one you have.
