    understandably, this is not about bass, but you guys here are knowledgeable, which is why im asking. i just bought a dean markely pro mag for my acoustic last night, and while i can get a good sound with EQing, its pretty quiet, due to the fact that its passive. short of buying a preamp(which i cant afford right now, which is why im asking this) is there an alternative way to making this an active setup of sorts? i.e.(is this foolish?) adding a 9v somewhere in the chain? or something similar. im very handy with electronics stuff, soldering, so its not a problem of actually doing. i just want to know if it can be done, or if there are any other cheaper alternatives. thanks guys

    Get a DI box. Behringer makes an active one for under $40.
