Anyone ever try this?
I don't understand what you are talking about.
If you are talking about powering them from the Amp I think you would toast them. I don't think
they are designed to handle that kind of Power.
RAG has mentioned on here before that one of their amps' speaker outputs could be used to power headphones, but I don't remember which model and the context.
Why wouldn't you just get a $20 headphone amp and a $2 y-splitter? That would be a lot easier.
please don't ever do that.
well, ok, go ahead....
So, it can be done?
edit: dummy me, I meant can the 100 watt amp power a IEM, not the "low" amp.
I have no idea, as it may be amp-specific. The GK folks will take care of you though, email their support or PM TBer "rag" (Mr. Gallien himself)
Maybe RAG will drop by.
IEMs are in essence headphones and the same rules apply to both. If you drive them directly from a speaker level output you will destroy them and quite possibly damage your hearing permanently.
You need to limit the power available to the IEMs to a safe level. I have described construction of such an adapter box several times on this forum. It's simple, cheap to make and very effective. If you search under my forum name and "headphone" you should find the information.
