Yes, the limiter should never light in performance; that is what headroom is for. However, the only way to judge where your signal level is with respect to the limits of the point in the chain where you are working is to get the limit light to flash. As others have said, your actual situation depends on the metering you have at the point where you are setting the level control.

For example, if you have a meter with a string of LEDs that can be used at the point of adjustment, then you can set the gain so that only the yellow flashes occasionally. You don’t have that luxury on the Yamaha speaker.

If your judgement and experience has informed you that setting the level at 9:00 with the QU gives you adequate volume without distortion, then apply that judgement. I was speaking about the more general case.
