This is the problem with pre amplified speakers Good luck everybody My mains go of a power amp more reliable but bigger and heavier to carry around

The volume setting on the speakers has LITTLE to do with how hard you are driving them. Your source might be extra hot and overdriving them. Read the specs on the speakers and use a sound meter to check your level. The speakers, being only 12 inch, should fill a room 20 foot by 20 foot to about 95 to 100 Db which you are only allowed 2 hours in MAX to prevent hearing loss. At 6 hours you should keep it down to 85 Db SPL. I know several deaf musicians that were exposed to high sound levels in rock bands... a deaf musician is kind of washed up.
