    you don't need to use any of those things for your amp to work... but they're just options...

    chorus/effects patch, IN....OUT is so you can add an effects loop, you go from the out, to the effects unit, then back to the IN

    Preamp Out..... is so you can use the preamp built in to the peavy to power a seperate poweramp, or maybe to a direct box for recording

    Pwr. Amp In.. is so you can use a seperate preamp, and the peavy's power amp...

    you could plug from the preamp out to the poweramp in, but then you'd be right where you started...

    Actually, its the other way around. The "power amp in" is for using a SEPERATE power amp, not the one in the peavey. For example, if you bought a Mackie M1400i power amp and wanted to use its power section to power the Peavey's preamp. Then you'd have 1400 watts, but with the tone of your peavey head.

    You were right about the preamp out and the effects loop though! ;)

    actually the poweramp in is more like effects loop return. have the basic 112 so it should be the same

    No, if you were right, then preamp out and poweramp in would be the same thing.

    Poweramp in is for using a different preamp with the Peavey poweramp, like Falsehoodbass said.
