Hey guys and gals. Here is my dilema. I am using a QSC RMX2450 bridged mono into my Ampeg 810. So I am bridging 2600 watts into a cab that can handle a peak of 1600 watts. Now the main reason for such a large power amp was to get a nice clear sound with plenty of volume and not have to worry about clipping the amp. I have always been told that overpowering your speakers isn't a problem unless you are pushing the amp to clipping or really thumping the hell out of things. I have also always been told that the proper way to run a poweramp is to crack it and adjust volume with the source that is running into the poweramp (in my case an Ampeg SVP-BSP preamp). My question is should I be cranking my poweramp and adjusting on my preamp or should I be cranking my preamp and adjusting on my poweramp insted so that I don't give my speakers too much juice? Any help is apreciated.
