Wheelz thank you for the link and all others(GRUNT, GMEYER AND WID)that helped me trouble shoot these difficult issues-THE DISTORTION AND CLIPPING. I leaned a lot the past few days from you guys on this Axiom website. You guys are very good and helpful. Now it;s my decision to either return or keep the EMO amp. Good amp and excellent price.
