The PacLite will flicker (begin to limit) red very very easily, and even hold red on certain songs for a few seconds, while the tower is not even flickering the limit light. Only when I really push the tower, does it begin to flicker.
One would think they would be designed to come on around the same time.
Am I truly clipping the Packlite amp? I don't want to damage or not get the most out of the setup. I will admit it's very hard to tell if there is any negative audible effects of this, but if it truly is clipping, they B1s are not performing at optimal conditions.
I called BOSE, and in short, they said this is just how it is
They told me I would probably be happier with the F1 subs.
So my second part of the question, is:
If I use the BASS LINE OUT ( with no b1 or b2), to go into the F1 is there any type of processing applied besides a crossover (40-200), which would match up with the F1?
I researched around, and it seems people that have tried this type of setup have mentioned the F1 sub clipping really early and not sounding as good as connecting to F1 sub first, then to the L1 (meaning it sounded better not using the BASS LINE OUT).
Looking forward to the people's experiences here.
