I was using BDDI the other day straight into an XTI and needed way more drive than I would normally to get enough volume out. It surprised me as I thought all Crown amps operated fine from BDDI. It was a cobbled up rig for impromptu birthday jam in a bar. Mostly classic rock and stupid loud so extra drive worked out fine. Maybe the brand new off brand battery powering the BDDI was a dud.
I digress. I can drive my Trace easy as through the effect return with BDDI but some bass amps probably work at higher level / lower sensitivity at the power amp input.
