Or 4 spares!

Seriously, have a plan B, C, D, E, F, G, etc ad nauseam. Murphy will kill your chances of making a great first impression, if you let him.

Think up a plan, write it down, go through your plan in your head until it's second nature. Try out EVERYTHING well before the gig! <--- VERY IMPORTANT!!!! You will be some 6+ hours from home. Make sure everything works as intended, bring waterproof covers for anything that you don't want getting wet.

Good luck! I hope the gig goes better than you expect!

Here are some pics. A couple are from edc! Everything went pretty smooth. I’ve had a couple pld4.5s blow out. One at edc luckily I had an extra. I’ve had 3 blow since I’ve gotten them. But you can’t beat free and free fixing. Otherwise I wouldn’t buy them lol.

Are you sure you have the cabs wired correctly and aren't running down below 2 ohms? I can't imagine blowing those amps.....

Yes they are wired all in series. Maybe due to some being lab12c and some not. but idk my guy said some can blow due to old software.

Maybe you should define the word "blow". Your amp doesn't blow because of software. It may stop working (highly doubtful), but it doesn't blow. Blow would mean that something mechanical happened......at least that's how I would define it.
