OK, this seems like it could go in several different forums, but I think it fits best here? I have a question about using the "input pad" on my amp. Here's how my signal chain "flows"...I Run my bass (an Active Ibanez SR505) into my Shure SLX wireless bodypack, then from the receiver into my pedal board (assorted Boss pedals & such) and from there directly into the input of my amp (SWR WorkingPro 400). The Shure bodypack transmitter has a 10dB pad switch that I have turned "on", but the amp also has a 10dB pad switch that I've been using also, am I effectively cutting my signal strength 20db? if so, which pad should I turn off? Is there a benefit from turning one off as opposed to the other? The whole reason I'm asking this is because the other day at rehearsal I accidentally must have bumped the pad switch on my amp, and I suddenly found myself with a whole pile of headroom I didn't have before, and it wasn't clipping and sounded great, but I was afraid to damage the amp, so I turned the pad back on....any thoughts?
