Active bass to passive (and vice-versa)

    I don't know if I'm posting this to the right forum or not, but here goes. How does everyone deal with switching from an active instrument to a passive one, and the subsequent change to input levels, in a live situation? I'm using an SWR Super Redhead which does have two input jacks (Active & Passive/Active) but the change in levels is still huge. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Interesting topic, Sticktapper. I think It'll get a more enthusiastic response from the folks in the Amps Forum.
