Exactly what I was getting at . On the low's driven hard they run out of steam.

Don't get me wrong, some of them did sound nice, but started clipping when driving low freqs & turned up..
Some even shut down...

We are talking 30kg extra or so then, thats all. Put the big amp in a separate case and the problem is solved.
