So i need some advice on gear....I am currently playing a Cort Evlz47 guitar with dimarzio d'activator 7 pickups....into a Line 6 POD HD 300 pedal.....then into at the moment a 15watt Hughes and Kettner solid state practice amp.....my problem is that this is my 3rd amp in less than a year i keep blowing the speakers and i dont play at high volumes 4 out of 10 max....just wondering what setup would give me the best and most reliable sound...a bigger amp or plugging my pedal straight into a cabinet (2x12 or something) or running straight into a set of monitors....any help would be greatly appreciated...cheers

Blowing the speakers? That doesn't sounds right...

Well the POD alone is a great tone tool. Maybe buy some nice powered monitors or headphones?

It depends if you need a rig to take to gigs or just something to play through at home. If your playing at home, some powered computer speakers are a cheap option that I still use. Bonus if it has a sub.

are all of the speakers running at the proper loads?

also if they are small speakers like an 8" in cheaper amps, maybe you pushed too much bass through with the lower tuning. i am not sure more or less speculation.

+1 what amps were they?

when you say "blown" speakers.... is there actual damage, or is it just "farting out" from bass? That's pretty common with low watt practice amps with small (<10") speakers.
