Has anyone tried using the acoustic image Clarus head in a straight-up rock setting? (small clubs, bars, practice, etc.) Could the clipping problems I've heard about be alleviated by using a more robust preamp, or is it more of a problem with input gain or poweramp output? What speakers do you think are ideal for this amp, considering the need for efficiency, small size and low impedance? I've been considering the Euphonic CxL-110, Bag End S-15D, Acme low B-1, or a 1x12 from a company like aguilar, epifani or bergantino. So far, Acme seems like the best choice for portability and efficiency (I'm thinking a pair of 4 ohm b1's,) but I might need the surface area of a couple of 12's or 15's. Any opinions?
