Eden WT800 & Eden 4x10 using Line 6 Helix as a preamp?

    Got a gig coming up with an Eden WT800 & Eden 4x10 as provided backline. Never used an Eden.
    FOH will get XLR/DI from the Line 6 Helix.
    I would prefer for the Eden to be as close to "flat response" as possible since it's simply amplifying models.
    From previous experiences, planned signal path is:

    Helix > MXR 10 band pedal EQ(to adjust input level and tone to make Eden sound best) > Eden

    Should I use the normal input jack with the Eden PAD engaged or is there a suitable LINE LEVEL IN that bypases the Eden preamp?
    The MXR has matched my output to almost anything without distortion in the past.

    Thanks!
     
  2. The eden has an aux in left and right, I would try that. Otherwise the effect loop return of the amp.

    Follow-up.

    Front input worked fine with the MXR gain cut back.
    Great-sounding amp except the cab response is not as good as ACME IME.

    PS: If you ever get a "backline and stage rider" and it says "L.D. Systems"......enjoy!!! Pros and easy to work with.
