hey guys, need some confirmation... so i'm using my Alessandro Basset Hound bass amp for a louder rock gig. its only 60 watts, and am trying to feed it into a more powerful 1200 watt power amp for onstage use. so, for our last few rehearsals, i've been plugging my Basset Hound's one speaker out into my friend's Avalon U5 (sometimes my Countryman DI, when its not available), and then into my Stewart power amp, where the power amp feeds my Acme 4x10 bass cab. simultaneously, with my Basset set @ 8 ohms, i take a cable from the other speaker out, and plug it into my 8 ohm THD Hotplate, which is set to "load". FYI, the U5 doesnt take a load. so, is this safe? as per Avalon's FAQ, i'm supposed to plug the Basset Hound into a speaker cab, but thought i could just use my hotplate instead. am i good to go? or am i slowly damaging my prized BH? and, does anyone know if my Countryman DI doesnt take a load, too, like the U5?
