We thought we had the volume turned down far enough to be safe. When the digital cannon blasts came along, I heard what I honestly thought was a gunshot going off in his apartment! I smelled smoke! I saw flames!
That EVIL Carver magentic field amp had the clipping LED illuminated, denoting the exhaustion of its headroom with a >1200 watt transient. The JBL speaker was shooting out sparks, and the voice coil was smoking as the cone burst into flames.
I've honestly never heard, felt, or smelled more accurate sound reproduction. by the way, it was a bitch getting JBL to honor their warranty.
