Y-cable question

    I searched and, having read quite a few other replies, and still wondering if what I plan to do is okay.

    Thanks to a couple of TBers, I'll have two very nice cabs shortly. I run a SansAmp into a QSC power amp. I'd like the option of changing the EQ of the signal going to each cab (less low-end to the 2x10, less high-end to the 1x15).

    Will it create any sort of impedance issue if I use a Y-cable from the SansAmp output to split the signal to separate channels on the EQ before going to the QSC?

    If I add a SonicMaximizer, I'm guessing the same answer would apply (i.e., if it isn't okay with the SansAmp, it wouldn't be okay to run mono to the SM and then split it coming out).

  2. no, shouldn't be a problem. You will probably lose a little signal, though, but it just means you run a little more gain on the sansamp or the eq.

    That should work.
