Excellent sound quality/ It doesn't make the tone sound dull and lifeless. Instead it's like adding additional speakers to your rig. The sound gets fatter. It just doesn't get louder...

This is apassive electronic device. so it needs no power of it's own.
Sound Quality:
I use it with my Mesa/Boogie Mk IV tube amp to bring it's volume down to the point where it sounds cranked but not loud. It's much better than a THD HOT PLATE or Marhsall Power brake because it employs a speker driver to consume the extra energy, not a resistor. This adds all the harmonics to the speaker circuit rather than just loading it down.
Ease of Use:
Just plug the input to the speaker jack of your amp and the Speaker to the cabinet and you're set. It's not rocket science, just applied physics.
Durability:
I'm gonna wait and see on this, but it's built like the proverbial tank.
