Quick question: I have 2 monoblocks (32 dB gain) rated at 350W RMS, and 2 M80 v3. I crank the volume on my prepro at half (I like it loud, what can I tell you grin); my SPL meter at 1 meter distance shows a peak of 98dB with music.
What am I missing? Either my math it's very bad, something is horribly wrong with my setup or my prepro outputs close to nothing.
