    "Bass cab", "highpassed at 80 Hz"? Did you mean low pass, or is this just driving LF cabs with the "bass" filtered out (like the low mids in the Cluster****s array)?

    If the building wiring isn't a fire hazard, and you've got lights dimming that much you may be in danger of blowing the transformer(s) off the pole. :-) It'll be fun. A loud bang and a shower of green sparks - just like the 4th of July. Then they'll have to put up a bigger one.

      I meant bass guitar cab and yes I meant high pass not low pass . I originally was highpassing at 50hz but was trying 80hz to help with the clipping issue.

        Instrument amp duty is harder on amps/speakers/electrical systems than even PA sub duty playing EDM In a dance club. You can get sustained, clipped sine wave bursts that last for several seconds, over and over and over again. You may end up needing to run 8 ohms per side. There's a reason "guitar" speakers aren't rated for very much power compared to their general purpose counterparts, and why tubes in the amps don't last very long.

          Killa: have you measured the Voltage level - especially when the clipping occurs?
