Here's my situation and just want some input: I'm starting to play more shows that have full PA systems so I'm not just playing out of my cab, but I am also playing through the PA. With my amp (Ampeg Portaflex 500) I have an XLR output and can send either a signal with my EQ settings or one without. I have set my EQ to make it sound good to my ears from my cab: bass (40 Hz) at 1 o'clock, low mid (220 Hz) @ 2 o'clock, and treble (4 kHz) @ 2 o'clock. This EQ setting I think sounds good when coming out of my 210 cab and I think it cuts through the mix well. So what I'm wondering is should I go XLR out from my amp with my EQ settings or without my EQ settings, or should I send my signal through a DI? Hope this makes sense and thanks for any input!
