    I don't want to biamp out of my Line 6 pod....I can't seem to get the tone I want outta that thing!

    So what's the best way to run 2 rigs?

    I want effects (occasionally) on one and clean on the other. I'm in a one guitar band, no other instruments besides the drums. So, I need some distortion when the guitarist plays a lead.

    i used to do that too.

    I ran my bass through a chorus pedal which had two outputs. one goes to the clean, the other to distortion pedal and on to the other amp.

    you can also do it with a small line mixer.

    Yeah, a stereo fx pedal, or a simple AB/Y pedal. Stereo bass is alot of fun, except for the schlepping of gear.
  4. Use your line 6 into a stereo power amp (power amp with two channels), and each of those powering a seperate cab.

    However, you say you cant get a tone you like using just one, so what makes you think using two will make it any better :p
  5. Why? Forgive me but I am interested.

    Simple as that.

    Bass goes into ABY box, signal A goes to rig A, signal B goes to rig B. Run them both at the same time, or kick one on when you need a little extra.

    With only one guitarist, the bands sound changes dramatically when he goes from playing rhythm to lead lines. This is normal of course, but I'd like to try to make up a little of what's lost w/ my bass without losing the normal bass sound.

    I use a Whirlwind A/B/Y box and a Morely HumEliminator box, which you may need if you get ground loop hum.

    POD XT LIVE, the floor unit. I need to spend more time with it, I'm sure it's a good product. I don't have my rig at home and the combo amps I've experimented w/ the Pod with, sound radically different, of course, as do headphones.

    A quicker solution, and probly the one I'll go with is the AB box. Thanks guys for all the help, everybody locally has told me something different. I figured I'd ask bass players :).

    No, my Carvin B1500/Ampeg/Ashdown rig sounds phenomenal, until i plug in the pod.

    CElton I'm a new note finder...

    The POD X3 would be perfect for this. You can run two different channels at the same time into two different rigs...
