Without a power soak of some kind a Quad run full tilt will be very loud, probably too loud for clubs, but it still wouldn't produce heavy distortion without mods. I will try to do a clip or two on wednesday and post them for you to hear. I use Tom Sholz power soaks on my Bassmans and Traynors, I'll see what one sounds like with this Quad.  
Another thing, if your Quad is like mine, it would benefit greatly by converting it to the Blackface Twin circuit. This involves removing the crappy master volume circuit, replacing the crappy turd brown caps with orange drops or mallorys, and maybe a resister or two here and there.
