Is it bad to keep crank my 15 watt amp to 10? I always turn it down when switching it on/off.

it will sound like crap, but it shouldnt blow the speaker. if anything it would blow the amp itself first.

if it is a good amp. a 10 watt amp will probably get blown. there are lightbulbs with more watts then your amp

it's probably a solid state, so it probably sounds like crap, but as long as your speaker can handle 15 watts it shouldn't be too bad.

Could that be more irrelevant?

You ought to be alright, worst comes to worse you'll break the amp and have the opportunity to get a better one.

lol, that's how i got my new one (except I dropped it down the stairs on my way to guitar lessons)

Theoretically it shouldn't be a problem because there's a reason that the knob can dial up to 10.

even still, moving the speaker that much on a practice amp, will usually cause buzz noise over time.

but you know what, it's a practice amp, so use it and have fun wt it.

as you start to upgrade, it'll just sit in a closet anyway.

they design electronic so that the controls can be maxed out, as long as the input is not boosted more than the one they test/set settings at at the factory, it won't damage it at all. maybe after long periods of time but that's it.

amplifiers (and most electronics) are tested so that their maximum normal ability is less than their maximum capacity. at 10 it wont be damaged, unless you use pedals or something that boost the volume further than 10.
though i would imagine it would sound crap.

I'd go for the weaker lightbulbs.
I take it back, better amp sounds more fun....
