running a Tmax through a power amp ???

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by violatedppl, Aug 22, 2005.


  1. if I run my peavey tmax through a power amp using the line out without a load on the power amp, would this cause a problem for the power section of my head.


    I could buy a cheap 2x10 to put on my 412 :) and it could sorta fix this question. but I would really like to know if I can run the head with out a load.

    Running a solid state amp with no load shouldn't be a problem.

    I'd be inclined to make a shorted plug to plug into the power amp input jack just to ensure that the input voltage to the power amp is indeed 0...
     
  3. I would just use a lineout of the head into the power amp

    Are you saying that your T-max isn't loud enough!? I run mine through a 2x15, and the master has yet to go above 2.5! Dunno if you're doing it for volume or what, but dang man :p.
