I've been thinking about selling my Peavey Classic 50 in order to get a HT-5 (maybe the head version.) My question is though, can you make a 5 watt amp loud by driving a full stack? Can the HT-5 drive a fullstack and compete with a drummer?

Driving a full/half stack will make your amp sound fuller. Using a head rated for more Watts contributes more to volume.

Ex: My 30W head was roughly the same volume driving a 75W 112 as it was driving a 120W 412. The 112 had speaker distortion.

EDIT: If I was running an HT-5, I'd be sure to invest in a decent mic and PA set. That will up the volume without changing the basic sound of the amp too much.
Maximum volume yields maximum goats.

I was just wondering the exact same thing not a hour ago. I have an opportunity to trade into a 15w Blackheart BH15H head that I was planning on hooking up to a 4x12 Peavey XXX cabinet. From what I could find, it would not matter but I would be interested to hear opinions on it as well!

more speakers don't make an amp any louder.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

This, this and another spoonful of this, just makes the sound "fuller"

I wish my amp sucked on my knob.


if you were to smash a child around the head with a full bottle of no more tears shampoo...would it be ironic if they cried

I have no technical knowledge to back it up, but I heard this explained somewhere else in the exact opposite way. Something to do with for every time you double the wattage, you get a +3db increase in volume, and that adding more speakers is a much more efficient way to get more volume.
