    Do you listen to music recorded in flac or mp3 ?
    If music is not compressed and has soft passages and very intense passages , then you may end up with headroom for dynamics . JL has rollback if clipping occurs , also if demand for power is not met , the amp also has a protection so it does not fail or even suffer too much.

    For tweets and midrange this would be good . For woofer & subwoofer not as much. Unregulated power supply is my choice as it digs deep when the going gets tough.

    i do -5db 1khz for midbasses, mids, tweets, and rearfill. i'll spot-check with -5db 400hz.

    i do -5db 40hz for subs.
