    Heres the run down...

    I have a Svt 450 head and Ampeg 610.

    I'm Using a SansAmp Bass Driver DI, DD6 and Boss Tu2 Tuner..

    I noticed the other day when I had the the drive on the sansamp cranked that my Speakers would glow orangeish from behind. I had it plugged in front of the amps preamp.

    Should I be using the effects/return loop for this or is there something wrong with my amp?

    why the hell were they glowing?
    thanks so much.

    There's a light bulb that's used to take excess energy away from the tweeter or something like that. When you play loud or hard, the light comes on. Perfectly normal.

    +1. Tweeter protection circuit. You might want to calm down with the treble and presence on your EQ.
