    Reading my amp manual, it says the following:

    "INPUT - Plug your passive or active bass in here. If your bass is too hot....."

    What are they talking about?

    It either means high output or stolen.

    In this case it obviously means high output.

    hehe, hadn't considered that. would be great, "if your bass is hot, press this button" with direct line to the 5-0! :p
