newbie amp question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Metallkasten, Sep 2, 2002.


  1. My amp has two inputs, an active and a passive. Does that just mean active input for active basses and Passive inputs for passive basses?

    no..

    You can plug active basses into passive inputs. Passive inputs (on my preamp) gives +14db and active is -....
    On my IOD, it is recommended that unless your basses active electronics are really hot, you should go into the passive input.
     
  3. so could i plug another instrument (like a keyboard) into the active input?
     
  4. Anyone?
