adding a Preamp out

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by KingOfAmps, Feb 11, 2006.

  1. Let's say I have a SolidState combo amp. I yank out the amp portion.

    The amp portion has no outputs other than one speaker-wire.

    Can this amp be modified for a "pre-out"??

    Can the speaker out be run into a DI without frying the amp?

    The amp in question is worthless but currently works great as a combo.

    There are DI boxes made to accept a speaker level signal. I don't know any names because I have just seen them in passing.

    Out of curiosity, what's the amp?
  3. Avalon U5 can accept speaker level signals. Might be more money than anyone would want to spend on a venture like this but it can do much more.
