600w Amp!

Anyway, I am not a guitarist. I am a keyboardist, but I know you guys can help me! So Ive been playing piano for 10 years. I am into prog, so I just got a keyboard. The problem is, the guy from guitar center told me that this amp that was 600 watts is great. So I got it. My keyboard will be shipped in a few days. My question is. Will this amp be safe to practice at home? I am pretty scared that I will go deaf lol. I know 600 watts is a lot. Though I will have no problem lowering the volume?

What is the amp in question?

And yes you can turn the amp down to listening volume safely. Although I do not know why you would need a 600w amp. For band practice maybe 100w (Solid State?) is okay and for performances just go to PA.

Behringer Ultratone KXD12. The reason why I got this one was because it was cheaper than the 100W Roland amp. Also it was smaller and easier to carry. Guitar centar had 3 amps. This one, the 100W one and a 15 watt one.

It's not uncommon at all for keyboards. It is to cope with the lowest bass notes. My keyboards amp is a 1000+1000W PA head into two JBL 15" PA bins.

You would have been better off using a powered PA bin (or two) made by somebody other than Behringer though.
