    Hi, I'm new to my nice MS309 and I was watching the intro scene to Attack of the Clones; the bit at the very beginning where the silver ships comes flying in overhead. My amp was at about -30db! and my sub just a smidge under half volume. Anyway instead of playing it properly is just sort of made one big BOOM sound then stopped responding. I had to switch it on and off to get it going again.

    Did I just trip it out by trying to play it too loud?

    Thanks,

    That scene can be a sub killer, but usually only at near reference levels.
    Have you calibrated all your speakers? If you were only listening at -30db on a correctly calibrated system you should'nt be worrying about tripping the protection circuit or worse blowing the driver!
    If you have'nt already calibrated to -75db I would highly reccommend you do.
    Hopefully you just tripped the protection circuit and have done no lasting damage.
