    For grins and giggles Ive been looking at a power amp to run my 2 extra cabs at the same time as my tnt tour .Going to run the xlr output from my tnt tour to the xlr input of the power amp.
    The question I have is the xlr input feeds thru to the trs of the same channel can that trs now send a signal to say another power amp of same brand or any brand?Was wondering in the very unlikely event I'd ever have the need to hook another power amp and cabs up.
    This is from the manual of the power amp.Ive underlined the sentence that intrigued me.I know zip about power amps by the way, in case you guys haven't figure that out already. .
    "Pin 2 Positive, Pin 3 Negative, Pin 1 Shield (Ground).
    Recommended for long or short runs, either fixed or
    frequently changed. Each channel’s XLR and TRS
    jacks are connected internally, and provide feed thru
    to the other connector."

    The inputs of the power amp behave as you describe, and can be cascaded.

    However, the XLR output of the TNT is designed to feed a mixer. You will probably get better results using the effects send instead. (The manual agrees)
  3. What was your question again, please?

    Correct, there isn't enough drive level for a power amp.
