Could somone please explain in lay terms how watts actually relate to volume or is it just a common misconception? I was jammin' with my bass player the other weekend, testing out my recently acquired Princeton Reverb and he was going through a 200 watt SS Torque amp, we both cranked the volume up full and my little PR was still slightly louder!! And how come Hifi amps that claim to be 100 watts or whatever are never as loud as guitar amps?? Is it simply to do with solid state wattage being less dB than tube wattage? If so why?Thanks.
