Finally, after about two years of saving, researching etc - I've put together my ideal rig. Demeter HBP-1 pre, 2 Wayne Jones 2x10's and currently a borrowed BSS power amp (1200W bridged 4 Ohms). One big problem though. The amps protection circuit keeps being activated, thereby switching the amp off. Ahhhh! I've tried to hook it up to a bag end s15d using bananna plugs - NO GOOD. I've tried to switch the Demeter from line level to moc level (less output apparently) - NO GOOD. Tried to play with the sensitivity knobs on the amp - NO GOOD. I've tried almost everything - NFG! Low volume too. What I want to do next is try the direct out of my GK400RB into the power amp, but I need to put a cable together. The amp has an XLR input so I'm using the XLR output from the Demeter. I need to put together a phono to male XLR so I can hook up the GK into the amp. This should also enable me to try the other line outs on the Demeter which are also 1/4" phono. My question therefore is how to hook up this cable - to go from preamp to poweramp (phono output to XLR input.) Any advise will be greatly appreciated as I am extremely frustrated at the moment.
