    Can anyone suggest the best placment for the Aguilar DB 924 preamp.

    Directly to the input jack between the bass and the amp or into the effects return jack in the back of the amp
    Do I disconnect the battery from the preamp in my Spector CR5 if I'm using the aguilar also.

    Can I hurt anything with 18v plus the 9 volts for my bass?

    Moved to effects. This forum is for requesting tabs for certain songs.
     
  3. DO NOT remove the battery from your bass ...you will get no sound... plugging the pre-amp into the fx loop is fine...it will directly acess the power amp in your head..bypassing the pre-amp in your head...this applies only if it is a rackmount pre-amp.if it's a "onboard" pre that goes in the bass itself...then bring it to a tech at your local music store and they can install it for you...hope this helps..
