Which socket for wireless?

    I play through a wireless system and the receiver is connected to my amp via a standard 1/4" jack plug. I normally put this in the Passive input of the amp but was wondering if this is the correct method or should it go into the Active input socket?

    Unless using the passive input overdrives your preamp, there is NO reason to use the active input.

    Your bass being active or passive has nothing to do with how hot your output to the amp is (there are many passive basses that have a hotter output then actives).

    Cheers.

    My bass is active but like most bass players I use the passive socket as it sounds better that way. ;)

    I have been using the passive socket for the wireless unit.
