    if i had a power amp, could i use the pod XT live as my pre amp? and run straight into a cab?

    do you guys recomend teh XT live or just go for the xt pro ?

    you can use the pod xt live as a pre. if you got a power amp and a cab, go for it!

    If you mean PODXTLive-->power amp-->cab then yes.

    A FULL RANGE cabinet will sound MUCH better using any modeling product. Modelers can be made to sound good with "normal" bass guitar speakers BUT they sound great with full range cabinets. Even my son's Behringer keyboard amp cabinet(15 + mid + tweeter) works. These ACME's (http://www.acmebass.com/) work too:

    You may want to compare the X3 Live
    to the XT Live.
    I've used the XTLive for over a year but will eventually get an X3 Live and keep the XTLive as a "backup".
    My backup now is a SansAmp 3 channel pedal:

    The referenced website is my preferred because:
    1) Free ship on most items
    2) Flex pay makes getting bigger things easier with gig $$
    3) The free extra year of warranty offered

    the reason i'm interested in it because, i was originally going to get a swr mini mo preamp but i think the seller sketched out.

    i'm looking to put together a portable bar rig.. i think this might work pretty good.

    bass--> line 6 ----> power amp---> schroeder 410 cabinet

    what do u guys think? i dont think i'd ever use all the stuff on the x3 live.

    I've done it also, and it sounds great that way. Also agree on using full-range cabs. The Carvin LS1503 works great with the Line6 front-ending it.
  7. I have seen users of the BOD XTL mention using full-range set ups for the best live sound... I just pulled my BOD XTL out of the storage box this weekend and I'm going to start working with it again. At the moment, I don't have a full - range cabinet. What I do have is a Bi-amped set up and I'm wondering if that would give me similar results in your opinions

    Bass --> BOD XTL --> Carvin BX1200 ( into effects loop return ) Run in BI-AMP mode --> LOWS out to Carvin 15" no tweeter / HI'S out to EDEN D112XLT.

    I'm also curious when you guys run into a full range cabinet, do you run your BOD in Studio Direct Ouput mode or Live mode ?

    Running studio mode into full range cabs would be the best.

    I believe live mode alters the final EQ, but i dont actually know....
