If you are staying at a dorm, dont be bashful with your electronics. I showed up freshman year with a 13" TV because I thought there was a limit on size. The guy next door to me had a 55in projection in his room. I dont know which school you are headed off to but I only lived in a dorm 1 yr and then in apartments. I knew people that had half stacks but never really cranked them. Its amazing how much stuff fits into a small dorm room. Bring whatever the hell you want to bring and dont even think about being "considerate" or "accomodating" to your roommate or anyone else. You are going to have the time of your life in freshman dorms and you only get to live that experience one.

Only if I was a freshman again......

Good Luck to you.

Hmm, a 75 watt amp is a little to big. And do be considerate to your roommate. But get like a 30 watt or something like that. Maybe even less like a 20 or something. You can get some of those for like 100 bucks and still do the trick.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

You could just turn the volume down, if space really isn't a problem.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

i just figured this out. go buy a audio converter kit from walmart. 10$ plug your comp speakers into your amp phones jack or line out jack from that. keeps good tone and bypasses the amp so you can have good sound.
