    You might leave the bass and treble settings as neutral as possible to aid in keeping the clipping at a minimum but yeah, that's about where you might start to experience that. Loudness button will factor in as well.

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    How are you measuring the clipping?

    even when the hu was powering the hu there was distortion at 22 of 34.


    so i do think its from the HU and not the amp
