Low Tuning

Is Drop A guitar tuning harmful to amp speakers?

I currently use a 150 watt guitar amp. It has two 12 inch Celestion speakers. Been playing out this amp for years in standard tuning without ever blowing the speakers. I normally play with the amp turned up more than half way in rehearsals and at venues. Every now and then it gets turned up to about a 6 or 7 out of 10 depending on venue. I want to begin playing in Standard B / Drop A tuning. Question is: Can or will such a low tuning be harmful to the speakers? Can an amp like mine handle it?

Flabby? Incredible.

It is 'distortion', and not any real fears of damage when cranking a 150 watter.

Higher wattage amps not only handle volume and drive larger speakers, but respond better at low volumes (bass response) due to the boosting a weak frequency signal path to bring out its characteristics.

Practice amps of 5 -10 watts sound shallow and colorless in tonal qualities along the spectrum of picking up the range, only to recognize the pitch. But without the better depth a larger amp of 20 - 35 watts can provide. Compare a small portable radio to a larger, full frequency big(er) speaker one that isn't stereo.

[The reason why there are ipod stations and sound bars made for today's flat screen TV and PC monitors that come with wimpy speaker systems.]

That 150, and its bigger voice coil speakers, is made to handle low frequencies without breaking up and creating unwanted distortion and handling high volumes in output sound.

And that, is the RMS (watt ratings) factors to go by when recognizing what an amp is capable of providing in output power and loud settings without 'clipping' of the frequencies, or distortion results of slack, pitch set or loose strings.

Again, someone doesn't know their math.
