the wrong specs.  The "power soaks" are not great either.

Hi there Windsaver,
In the past I used an attenuator, a "power soak", between my tube amp's speaker
output and the speaker.

The purpose was to reduce the volume without losing tone by turning into heat.

It enabled me to really crank the amp up high and get out a great tone while
keeping the volume at humane levels.   I'm not sure if this applies to this
thread, but I am curious as to why you say these things are not good?
