That was my solution. Different expectations for different situations, as well as different equipment. I use a two watt tube amp and an Eminence Reignmaker speaker, usually adjusted for low efficiently.It's something I just learned to live with and accept that at home it doesn't really matter.
Rent a rehearsal space once a week, crank it and enjoy it.
At home just play through headphones or a little desktop amp. There's enough options these days at all prices for it not to be a problem.
That's how we used to treat the volume control(s) on the old Plexi - just like tone controls!
Just turn 'em up until it sounds good. Unfortunately 'good' means 'extremely f'king loud' and that's why I (and lots of other users) have wrecked hearing.
I've practiced saying "I'd like to say thank you on behawlf of the group and ourselves and I hope we pawssed the audition!"
