Tonight I was having a problem with my amplifier...turned out to be cable related...and my speakers were clipping. At first I thought I had blown a B110...but realized the problem and now they seem to be fine. In any case, at one point during some peak piano notes that were horribly distorted, the red light on the 105.2 head piece was flashing. I assume this is a clipping indicator...or was something frying? Any ideas?

Okay...so it is a peak level indicator...as I think I've figured out. And the dial on the back is adjustable? How is it set? Do you dial in the WPC of your amplifier? At the time of the incident, the dial was set to 50. My amp is 30 wpc.

and with a 30wpc you cannot really set the dial to anything other than 50wpc.
