A lot more volume past solid red lights...

Hi JDBass,

Thanks for bringing this up.

Here's an excerpt from our wiki article about the F1 Model 812

When setting the Volume Control on the F1 Model 812 you can turn up the Volume Control until you see solid red, and then turn it down a little. Occasional red flickers (up to a second long) are okay. This may start to happen at -5 dB before clipping or with transient peaks. You will see these to warn you when you are approaching clipping. If you see solid red then you may be clipping.

It is completely fine to turn up the Volume well beyond 12:00 o'clock if you need to.

After you have found the maximum volume available you can control the system volume at the source. You probably won't have to change this setting on the F1 Model 812 unless you use a different source.

You won't damage the system if the red lights are visible. The internal limiter will protect the system. You can tell when the limiter is working. The yellow limiter light will come on.

Hi DJ8X,

Both possible and safe.

I have not experienced this. I fear red lights. I do remember seeing a demonstration where a true "clip" was well past the visual indicators. So what you describe is highly possible and safe. 

Please see my post above.

Does that help?

Yes I like that. I will employ this tactic next time and measure my results.
