I use a Carvin bi-amp head which is 2x250 watts at 4ohm with 2 4x10 8 ohmes each(Eminance speakers) Quad boxes and a Stingray 5. From 1/4 volume up the low notes don't sound like they do at lower volume. The only way I can describe the sound is like it's very wavey and sort of a blurting sound. I car't go past near half volume or the b string makes no sence at all and the open E rings just as bad. This is with all the EQ's Flat. It has been suggested that I'm pushing alot of power and more so when I start uping the EQ's and that better quality speakers and maybe at least one 15" instead of a Quad might help. So my question is has anyone got any comments or had any experience with loud heads, cheap speakers and their sizes and the low frequencies that I'm pushing. Sorry about the bad sound description, shit hard to describe sound. Thanks
