RBI causes SVT CL to shut down??
I've used a Sansamp RBI into the front of an Ampeg SVT CL for a very long time without problems. I like the RBI sound better than the CL gain /master sound, but I don't like having one preamp going into another, for me simple is better, having too many eq points is not my cup of tea...
So I tried the RBI into the power amp in on the classic, bypassing the CL preamp entirely, sounded very good, but about 2 hours into practice the CL went into protect mode and shut down. The amp didn't seem overly hot to me, or no hotter than usual, so I'm not sure if it overheated, but it restarted after about 20 min..
It is worth noting the master volume on the Cl does not have any effect on the power section. Also I'm using a passive bass, no effects, and 810e.
Thanks in advance.........
