    Hi, am quite new to bass amps and such but I acquired a small combo, a Peavey TKO 115s, and it being 75w is pretty small for bigger gigs, I can really afford to buy a bigger amp yet but is using the DI line out into the desk a good option for getting it louder for the bigger stuff? Or micing it up?

    Thanks, Al (Wheels)

    Both are good options, though obviously the cheapest is to use the DI line in the amp, and that's what I would do for now.

    That's exactly what the DI out is for. Let the PA do all the "heavy lifting", and use your amp as a personal monitor. Be sure to tilt it upward so you can hear it better onstage.

    Thanks guys. Also there is input for another cab, do you reckon it'd be worth investing in the extension cab?

    Unless you had a cab lying around, I don't think it'd be worth investing in an extension cab. I don't recall TKOs having a DI out? I've always used a DI between my bass and the amp. But we are talking mid 90s TKOs, they could have easily changed.

    Yeh I've checked a hundred times it's a TKO 115S but whenever I try to find a manual or a pic on google it's never the same as the pic. Ok thanks I'll just go for the DI out option at the moment.

    It's this version...
