In that case, it sounds better when it's off.

I only heard a slight difference between them on my 900, at wall shaking volume, so I left it on 100 watts.

If you're EQ'd loose, you'll sound loose anyway.

That was my real answer.

But if you insist on me posting something more helpful to your own situation, the 50W setting should sound a bit smoother than the 100W, which should have a touch more bass and be a little more articulate, but at the expense of warmth.

That is, if you're using any power tube distortion and not diming the preamp.

it's all up to you which sounds better, personally I'd go with the 50watt as it isn't as mind numbingly loud(tinnitus is a bitch...)

I can assure you, 50W is still mind-numbingly loud.

In fact, it's only 3dB of difference between 50W dimed and 100W dimed.

I have a vpr (virtual power reduction) switch on my tsl and I think the amp sounds exponentially better when the vpr is not engaged.
