Post Nigel Tufnel," Joe has many things...I have....Volume.
So, I live in the barracks. and I guess I pissed off my neighbor like four times in 12 hours yesterday. I was jamming out and thought I might have heard someone knock, but couldnt hear over the amp, so I kept playing :twisted: . anywho. I have a cyber twin 130 watts, an even though its solid state on the amp side of the house. I can't help but let these celestions breathe a little, it just sounds better if i crank it up a bit. One of my dear friends with good intentions, said why dont I use headphones......um DUH cause that takes away 25% of the tone!!!!! if not MORE!

I need to sound proof my room I think.....lmao, I had security forces called on me a couple months back... Any body have any suggestions so I dont piss people off?

How about a power soak or HotPlate? Crank the amp at lower volumes.

I'm only playing on 2.5 or 3.... would a hotplate help with a solid state amp? I wonder if I am turning it up to drive the preamp tubes or to just get the speakers to move some air.....

Put some mattresses up against the walls... They soak up loads of sound.

It'll look beautiful aswell.. :wink:

Power Brakes and Hot Plates shouldn't be used with SS amps.

Have you ever considered putting egg cartons on the wall?? Acoustic foam can be quite expensive, but is an alternative as well.
