    Hi all!!

    I just buy a SVP-Cl and I have the PLX1202. I have not tried yet, i am waiting delivery of the SVP.

    Is there any issues with gain , sensitivity with this combination?

  2. It depends on your bass. Mine has a little bit of trouble driving my SVP-CL to my QSC USA900 at full power but it is close and my bass has a low output. I have no problem being heard so I don't consider it to be a problem.
  3. If you do have a problem, an EQ pedal in front to boost the signal could help.

    thanks muzikman!! the stingrays are hot in their output, so I guess I should not have any problem!Also, the rest of my basses have high output, let see on the trials

    The SVP-CL is not what I would call a high gain preamp, but any newer one from the last year or so should have sufficient gain to work fine with the QSC.

    The first run had a lower gain. Some people had trouble in combination with amps requiring higher inputs. The higher power units, from QSC and others, tend to need more input.

    thanks!! I PM you with the QSC input specs, because i can not see any specs regarding this from the AMpeg SVPCL manual

    while not exactly the same, i run an older model ampeg SVT-IIP tube pre into a QSC poweramp with no problems at all, in fact, the only difference in sound between my current setup and my old SVT-II head is the lack of warmth from the solid state power amp as opposed to the tube power from the SVTII head.

    THe one that i will receive, was shipped from ampeg last week to the Distributor, so I guess this one is a newer version.

    thanks for clarification
