Hi! I just got the Universal Audio Ox attenuator and was hoping to use it with my beloved Herbert. Ox can however not be used with amps more powerful than 150w rms. I had hoped that i could use it as long as i kept the master volume low. UA support is however very clearly stating that i should not use it with my Herbert at all. So heres my question: Is there any way to reduce Herberts power-rating? I seem to remember that old 100w Marshalls could be reduced to 50w by taking out 2 power tubes. Will something similar work with Herbert?

Are you human?: 951
Why using an attenuator or pull tubes when there is a master volume ?

Sorry,
Peter

I agree.

Also the UA OX lacks any speakers models of V30 speakers... which are the best sounding and most ideal speaker for Diezel amps.

Well i agree on that point. I just wanted to be able to try it through the direct recording interface (cab and mic sims) of the Ox. I have tried it on my other amps since i posted the question and it´s really no big deal. It`s good but i don`t think i`ll be using it all that much. I`m an idiot when it comes to the tech-side but i have a problem understanding why The Ox would be damaged if i keep down the master volume. I`ve been playing it on a 2x12 Bogner cab (Vintage 30:s) that i think is 120w for over a decade. But that`s a question for another forum. Case closed:-)
