The “volume” setting on the back of the speaker, is actually an attenuator. Think of it as the control you use to set how loud the input signal needs to be before the amp starts clipping. I’m not going to start doing maths, but the 12 o’clock position appears to be +4dB. Your Qu is capable of putting our lots more than that (maximum output is given as +22dB), so you could in fact, easily be clipping the PA or running at full volume.

My regular PA is more than twice the power of yours and probably a more efficient design*. I’ve occasionally struggled for volume in venues smaller than the wedding venue you describe with it.

Sorry – not what you wanted to hear, I know.

*Power alone doesn’t really give any indication of how loud a speaker is – efficiency is much more important. How it sounds is quite important too!
