Yeah I've been wondering about using different amps for the same signal, think perhaps same make and model is gonna be best if I daisy chain them. Looks like I'm gonna have to get in more debt to the bank and buy even more amps!

I'm amazed no one has thought to mention XLR line splitters as the solution. I use a relatively cheap linesplitter from Stageline , LSP-102 .... These don't have major electronics involved in their circuitry so this cheapo product is in fact robust and does the job of providing a proper signal to the amps with no confusion...

A bit of shopping around and they can be acquired much cheaper than this...

I hate to start confusing anyone, but what about amps like Crest that use pin 3 as the hot. That´s going to be fun for anyone doing direct amp to amp links. Best thing is to keep to one brand of amp per rig unless you really know what you´re doing! Confused

EDIT: maybe that should be old Crests - like when they were Crests and not Peaveys! Smile

simple and effective... turn your X2 outputs from your cross over into X6...

Of course that will work, but daisy chaining is a much cheaper solution (or Y splits if you have no link out on your amp inputs).

from experiance splitting the cable reduces the signal volume and quality...

also with the board you can control the volume of each output.. so if your amps are all differnt you can run them all on full then control the volume into each amp indavidually.

Interesting. If I understand the theory correctly, with modern(sih) gear with low output impedance and high input impedance, the tiny drop in level from splitting is not significant (i.e. barely measurable and almost certainly not audible)... and this is borne out by my experience.

Whatever works for you I guess. For me, once less component in the audio chain is a good thing.

We use one of the Berri splitters in our sound, and can well recommend them..



2 in, and eight out (a direct stereo "mix" out, and six individual, gain controlled channels)..
