    To be honest, it will depend upon that amp. I don't have any experience with Hartke amps, so I honestly don't know. One thing that I have noticed though, is that the active input just seems to be a passive input that has a cut in it's signal level. On many amps, the inputs are simply wired in parallel with some sort of signal limiter on one of them. If that's the case, then it would work just fine. Check your manual or e-mail Hartke. Perhaps someone else would know around here...
