active input?

  1. I have an active bass but my svt 3 pro head has only one input with a variable gain dial. It does have a -15db button, does this do a similar job to an active input?

    Yes, yes it does. The active inputs are made to accomodate the higher outputs of some active basses. Note, however, that not all active basses necessitate the active input. Some of them have outputs similar to passive basses.
