So, my school is getting an amp that should be showing up tomorrow. We are getting a BEHRINGER EP2500. I know Behringer isn't the best equptment, but it was cheep enough, so, oh well. Anyway, this amp is 500 watts at 8 ohms and the speakers we're going to be using are 400 watts at 8 ohms. So, would I need to turn the gain down on the amp or will it only put out 400 watts for the speakers. I assume that it is the second, but I'm not sure. I've never set-up an amp, so I am just unsure of what to do with the gain settings. I hope this makes sense. I'm coming off 3 weeks of back to back shows, and its 11:30, so my brain isn't really working right now. I just don't know what to do with the left and right gain settings on the amp, everything else I can do. I hope that makes sense. Good night all, thanks very much.
