  1. A while back I posted a thread about phantom power damaging circuitry when using the xlr out on the bass 350.

    Here is what I was told:

    For you that don't know what phantom power is maybe post a thread titled what is phantom power? :D

    Anyways it is usually 48 v that is used to send power to certain mics etc. And if the sound board has one button to turn it on or off. If it is on it affects all the channels on the board therefore affecting your head.

    If it has seperate on/off switches for each channel then just turn it off on your channel and your good to go.

    Also the fx send works as a pre amp out, which can be plugged directly in to the sound board to give the same effect as the xlr out. Althuogh I am not to sure how to do this with my bbe sonic maximizer in the loop. I guess I will have to figure it out.


    I also asked him about the min impedence being 2 ohms. He said it does work your amp a lot hotter and it is ok if you leave your eq pretty much flat.
    But if your the type to turn up the bass control or whatever you may run into some problems.
