    Does anyone know if you use an SVT CL as just the power source by going into the effects return, if the master volume controls your volume? I have an SVT II non pro that doesnt have a master volume, and when I try this method, its at full volume. I can only control it if the pre amp has a master volume control, which some do....and some don't. And even if they do, i have to pull the volume down to next to nothing, to the poiunt where I'm choking the characteristics of the pre amp.

    The Master Volume is before the Preamp Out/Power Amp In jacks on the back panel. There is no effects loop. If you plug into the Power Amp In, the Master Volume will have no effect on the signal going into the jack.

    sorry thats what I meant on an SVT. power amp in.
    On other amps I've used the effects loop in.
