Looking for advice on how to get more juice out of my rig. I'm currently playing an active bass into a DG B7KU - > 500W poweramp - > 800W 8x10 at 4Ohms, stereo. I find myself having to dime the volume on both pedal and amp just to hear myself between our drummer and guitarist, something easily achieved when going through the power section of my 300W 4x10. We play techdeath in a fairly small room, but we watch our levels and aren't too loud, considering. I have always-on distortion for some extra definition and clank, and I don't have my mids scooped or lows boosted enough to shake the walls. So, what gives? Is it as simple as changing the input sensitivity from 1.4V to 0.7V or 26dB, or is there some other aspect I'm missing? Cheers Edit: I'm feeding the amp an unbalanced signal, surely that can't account for the low volume, can it?
