  1. Ok if I where to hook up my new bass amp up to my sound card?, All I have to do is plug the xlr cable in to my mic port correct? Then go head pop in a boomy movie correct?

    yes the xlr/di connection or headphones connection. I'd probably start with headphone to make sure not to overload the sound card. of course with the headphone connected you can't hear the internal speaker.

    what did you mean by "boomy movie"??
     
  3. I mean like Id4, Or MIB lot of boom from fire balls or explosions, and so forth.

    If you're looking for output FROM the amp, use the DI output.

    If you're looking for a way to send sound THROUGH the amp, then i'd use the effects return jack, bypassing the preamp and the front panel controls.

    For option B, I'd just get a set of 2.1 speakers though...
     

  9. I got a 5.1 surround sound system with a blown sub but the amp still works, So basicully this is what I wanted to do, Basicully to turn the new amp in to a duel use amp that can kill 2 birds with one stone you know?
     
  10. I used to hook up my SWR WM12 combo amp to my computer - on my Sound Blaster sound card I used the "front" stereo output to my stereo computer speakers and connected the "rear" stereo output into an stereo/mono adaptor into the input of the amp. Slightly turn up the bass EQ and turn off the mid and treble EQ.

    Then you want one of the inputs, not the output from the XLR connection.
