I've not attended any heavy metal gigs recently, so I didn't know they used things like that on stage. I can imagine the operating conditions though.its pretty small for sure, looks like a standard 1/4" pot for four leads. Works great on heavy metal concentrate conveyor belt idlers in pretty horrible operating conditions
this Unit does not have a limiter in it, but what I did was set up the unit to have a minimum attenuation of -30db. So when my volume knob is at it’s loudest position I still have a -30db pad in the circuit. I measured my room and speakers and found the pad value to give me 85db out of my speakers from my listening position. That turned out to be a -30db pad. From there I can turn the unit down further by 10 steps of roughly 6 db each. But in practice I think I could get by with 3 or four...Looks good.
Im curious about the feature where the volume knob is limited to a certain peak % of the signal (excuse the layman terms).
Would this be useful in a case where you had some very high power amps on the speakers for headroom, so that you could never accidentally turn things up to a dangerous volume level?
Ive become paranoid lately thinking about an atmos system id like to have because the wattage is would be really high, and im concerned about a failure or accident letting the thing output 5 or 10 thousand watts.
