Guest lime ruined my life

i'm considering getting some new speakers. The models i was looking at are 100W each, and they're for a 4x10 cab, so there will be 4 of them. My tube amp is only 75W output MAX.

Is it better to get speakers with a smaller power capacity to get closer to the genuine "speaker ripping apart" sound?

Come to think of it i'll probably never have my amp over even half power so i don't even know why i'm asking.

Err the only genuine speaker ripping apart sound is... err the speaker ripping apart ???

Is that sound actually desirable ?

Ideally you want your speakers output handling to be a good bit beyond your amps so avoid any speaker damage.

Also depends how the 4 are wired in the cabinet regarding impedance too.

A valve amp will put out a lot more wattage than a solid state one too..

YES!

someone once suggested an idea for a stompbox which consisted of a crappy speaker being pushed to breaking point > microphone all inside the box. I always wonder what this would sound like if you had it mixed in parallel. Even if it sounded bad it'd sound good!

i added a switch to a big muff pi to make it a single clipper, except for some unknown reason the switch didnt oprate as i expected at all in the first position i put it in. It makes this insane super distorted compressed gate effect,it sort of sounds like everythings blowing up, the only thing is it has a really high thresh-hold with a really short decay, i might put the switch back in and try it with my compressor before it, as when i finally did get the switch to switch to a single clipper it didint actually make much difference because of the amount of gain still present in the first booster section.

YES!!!

The valves on my amp went microphonic right at the end of a gig I played last night. It sounded like it was going to explode and take everything with it.

It was ace.

YES!!!
