I use msr400s quite often, and tend to have the volume dial at about 9 o’clock (else I hit clipping before the meter moves appreciably)

But… they aren’t 400W RMS, look at the electrical plate – max electrical input is 130W, they just can’t push 400W for any length of time.

Personally I prefer the Mackie 450s when I have them available, but the MSR are in stock, so they get the brunt of the work. I’ve run the MsRs with a studio spares (stop sniggering at the back) sub (600W) borrowed from a local theatre when I needed to run e-drums and the full power from the Bass through them, and that worked well. Normally the Bass amp provides 80% of the volume, I just top it up from the FOH 🙂
