  • Not Blowing Up The PA

    Can I run a line from my bass amp's 'line out' jack to a PA input? Or do I need anything in between to avoid blowing up the PA?

    Would running a line from the 'send' jack on the effects loop be any different?
    The difference between playing guitar and playing Guitar Hero is the difference between sex and masturbation. You can get off on both, but one is for wankers.

    Yes, you can run a line from the bass amp line-out to the PA input.

    If all you have is an effects send, that will work as well, but it will be post-volume control. Meaning, if you adjust your amp volume, it will adjust the amount of signal fed to the PA board.

        Plus,with the effects send,I believe you'll have to use a "Y" so that you can run to the board as well as send the signal back into the amp.
