Let me say this. Having a red light blinking on and off isn't clipping to me and will not damage speakers. It's when the red light stays on constently where the issue of damaging a speaker can happen. The light coming in little spirts is fine. That's how I run the setup. Never damaged the tops ever.
Let me say this you can't make up what gain structure is to suit yourself. If you are running your speakers at "12 O'clock" and cranking the volume on the mixer/controller that's improper gain structure and you are clipping and probably distorting
