    Just got a Carvin 4 string active/passive electronics. When using the active setting, is it wise to flatten the highs/mids/lows or use the detent. I'm tired of lugging my amp around. I'm thinking of going into a powered mixer via a Radial Passive DI box..XLR channel. If I go this route, I like using 12" speakers or shall I use EV 15" ZX4's? Lastly, what does the toggle switch on the bass activate. I'm new at this..thanks.:hyper:

    The toggle switch if I remember correctly is not a bridge or neck pickup selector. It is for coil splitting. It is an option that Carvin offered to the buyer. Here is a little more info... While coil splitting and parallel wiring sound very familiar, there are some differences. One difference is output. Splitting a 16K ohm DC resistance humbucker results in an 8K ohm single coil that translates into a -3db lowering in output.

    I think you have option 31 on your bass. Go to Carvin's web and give them a call.

    To engage the passive electronics, pull up on the master
    volume control. While in the passive mode the active tone controls will not function, giving you a completely uncolored passive sound.
    The sound you get out of your bass in the passive mode is a traditional Fender Precision Bass growl. Awesome!
