Is it possible to blow you amp, by turnign it up to loud, using no effects or nothing, just turnign it up to loud.

Cus im scared to turn my amp up not even a 1/4 of the way, cus it gets REALLY REALLY LOUD!! And im afraid im gonna blow it sometimes!!

Well many amps dont really go much louder after you turn the volume half way it just puts more stress on them.I would just try to not go further than half way on volume and you should be fine. smile.gif

It's possible to implode a speaker cone at high volume but a good guitar speaker should be robust enough for this not to happen - particularly if its the correct rating for the amp you use. I'd have thought that a guitar speaker is more in danger of the cone getting accidental damage from kicks, knocks, being dropped, rattling loose if not fitted properly. Last damaged (hifi) speaker cone I saw was due to my then 3 year old daughter sticking a pencil through the cone dry.gif . My fault as I tend to run hifi speakers with the grills/covers off as most spoil the fidelity.

Cheers,
Tony
