Beyond that my experience doesn't go too far into the whole "inductive" part of amplifiers and speaker systems though...is there a chance it might be better to do something else to ultimately keep all that stuff happy and unmelted/fried...??
    im not expert but i have read and been told to leave volume control at its high setting..
