So today I finally got my Carvin DCM1500 in the mail, and I was excited to try it out, thinking that 1500 watts bridged should just blow away the 200 watt thing I was using before. With this in mind, I was dismayed to find that, for some reason, my Carvin is QUIETER than my other 200 watt thing! (a GK rb400 head) I'm sure I must be doing something wrong...Whenever I turn the power up on my Carvin power amp or Trace Elliot GP11 preamp, the Carvin starts clipping like crazy. Could it be my speakers? I'm using a GK 4x10 and 1x15. It doesn't seem like they could be the problem, though, because before them I had a yorkville 2x10 combo that was just as loud as my whole GK rig. Could it be some sort of clash between the ohm ratings or various things? I don't really know how that stuff works...just thinking about it. Any advice you guys have would be much appreciated. I've got some big shows coming up and I need to get this sorted out! Thanks!
