Indeed so Sir but yes, Speakons at these power levels to be sure.

Yes, I hadn’t thought of that. A loud buzz or a temporary short wouldn’t be good either way. :lol:

I’m still interested to hear from an electronics expert how 80 watts power input can sustain (pun not originally intended, but now I see what I’ve done there I’ll say it was - visions of ‘prog rock’ lead bass guitarist doing Hendrix style feedback impressions) 500 watts of output.
