Alright about four months ago I decided my old Peavey Combo was do for retirement, and I needed a new, more powerful rig. I put together a rack system incorporating: ADA MB-1 Preamp Behring Composer Compressor Mackie 1400i poweramp (700wattsx2) Carvin 1x15 Now I turn this up as loud as it will go, and it is only a little louder than my old rig. The Mackie clip light starts lighting up way earlier than I thought it would. Where is the problem here? My only thought is that the 1x15 might not be very loud, but its rated at 600 watts, so I dont know. I figured it out and according to the 2xold power = +3dbs, I am gaining 6dbs out of this system. I can promise you I am not. As always, any help would be greatly appreciated.
