OK – Just reading numbers from specs is not exactly like real life, but it does tend to give some clues!

The desk has “Nominal Output” “+4dBu = 0dB meter reading” (page 82)

So even the first yellow on the meter is hitting the max for your speakers if you set them at +4. Turn the attenuator on the speakers up (clockwise), and you’ll just hit that same maximum with the desk on a lower level.

At that gig when you turned it all the way up – does that say -36dB on your speaker? – you were hitting maximum even before the second green LED on your meter came on. But it’s still the same maximum whichever way you get to it.

Once you hit that maximum, the limiter in your speaker starts doing things to the sound, which makes it more probable that it will feed back.
