So I just bought a used Trace Elliot AH200 (circa early 90s) and I figured I'd test the sound quality against my Carvin R600. So I plugged into the Carvin and played for a bit to get the tone, sound quality and volume stuck in my head. Then I plugged into the AH200 (we're talking 200 watts vs 600 for the Carvin), turned it on, set the volume at the same level as the Carvin (set on 1), adjusted the 12-band and gain accordingly and proceeded to shake the freaking walls with the first string movement. Basically, I had to turn it AND my bass DOWN in order to match the volume level I had previously on my Carvin. Keeping in mind that I was running each head through the same pair of 8 ohm cabs, thus not even being able to realize the full 600 or 200, why in the hell would the AH200 be THAT much louder than the R600? For reference, the Carvin has never had any problems nor has it ever suffered any decreases in sound quality or volume, so it's not as if it's damaged. Are AH200s really that loud or (as stupid as this sounds) is it possible that they may have written the wrong model number on the back?
