I've recently purchased an Ampeg 410 with B2RE head. This is an upgrade from my Crate BX100 (is there a stronger word than upgrade????). Since I now have equipment that I'm concerned about taking care of, I'm trying to wrap my head around this clipping issue. After reading the clipping damage thread, my previously-mentioned head almost exploded. Does anyone have recommendations for a practical way to approach using my cab/adjusting my levels to both provide plenty of sound and ensure I don't damage my speakers? My handy B2RE manual says to adjust levels to where a "strong note" gives me the red clipping light, and to have the limiter engaged. So fine, I'm doing that. But based on previous threads here at talkbass, as well as the knowledge that the light means I'm going somewhat out of my cab's range, I'm getting picky about not hurting the biggest purchase of my life. So to simplify; how much red light is a sign that I need to back off/turn down? I know that question has no definitive answer, but really I'm just looking for advice on how to get a grip on my cab's range/capability in a manner that doesn't involve a big pop and lots of smoke Thanks!
