    Running a crate powerblock into my v30 2x12?

    Seeing as v30s clock in at 65 watts making it a 130 watt cab and the powerblock's a 150 watt amp?

    Worth the risk or have i just totally misread the maths/science?

    Just run your Powerblock unbridged to be certain, that'll be pushing 75watts into the cab an should be enough volume for most stuff.

    I bought a 2nd powerblock to run another bass cab and just stuck with the single one running 2x75watts as I didn't need the extra power. Those little buggers can't pump out some serious wattage when cranked.
