Well, I hope the Leach amp can do it. I also hope my stereo hasn't been having too much trouble with it.

Does anyone know anything about such characteristics of the Audiobahn ALUM12X, which I will eventually be using for my big amp, which I would hate to see go up in smoke, because it will be one of the finest amps ever built if all goes fairly well.

Ah-ha. I guess I didn't pay enough attention to what was going on before. I know the problem is with the EQ. With it bypassed, it sounds better, but with the signal going through the EQ, it sounds absolutely offensive, especially in the left speaker. It makes Ozzy sound like he's singing through a kazoo! To hear it, you'd think it's all running in class C, and clipping half the signal off too. I wonder what could be wrong. Indeed, I will have to check out that EQ.

However, that may be only one problem, because, as I stated earlier, there is still some funny distortion without the EQ, but not as bad.

I know I'm kind of posting as I'm analyzing, then analyzing some more, and posting again, that's why it sort of seems like I'm making it all up as I go. Sorry about that.
