    I was looking at some of crown's power amps, and the XLS series don't have a 1/4 in to hook up a pre amp but they do have 2 XLR inputs. Would I just take a regular XLR cable plug it into the XLR out of the sansamp and plug the other end into the crown power amp's XLR input for the channel I'm using?

    That's how I would do it.
  3. it will probably work, however most power amps are set up to accept line level, and the sansamp puts out mic level, which is significantly lower in amplitude.

    Not if you have one of the new ones. The "newer" ones allow you to select whether the XLR out is at mic or instrument level. At least mine does.
