I know I'm posting this in the wrong part of the forum, but Senior VIP members have there privelages. (lol) just kidding. Ok now down to the question. I got into an arguement with a guy over amps. He says that he can control the amount of power being sent out of his amp using some sort of power/gain or boost control. He's basically saying he can regulate his amp to send out only 50 watts if he wants, or as much as it's rating for using his power buttons. My arguement is I say that an amp always puts out a consistent wattage. So he argues why does his sub get louder when he turns the power/gain/bass boost up on his amp. I explained the reason for this was those buttons have the ability to make the signal stronger or weaker depending on which way you turn the button. He shot my idea down so I agreed we would take it here, and see if someone can give us a technical explanation. Basically I want to shove this in his face as he does mine. But if it turns out we are both wrong or I am wrong, I can live with it, that's how we all learn. But I really want to shut this motha sucka up. Appreicate all responses, take it easy.
