Re: smell from speakers..
most of the time these peaks are less than a second long, though. a clipped signal wouldn't negatively effect a speaker at all if exposed to this greater amount of power for a split second. they should be fine. i think that a neg three db will work just fine, but if u want to be on the safe side, u might go with a zero. i wouldn't personally, but that's just me.
