monitor question
« on: January 02, 2017, 04:08:22 PM »
I am using an EDEN WTX bass amp with a 4 ohm AMPEG SVT-410HLF cabinet that sits on the stage floor beside me, not behind me. Plenty of power on the low-end but on some stages I can't hear my higher notes over the two guitarists in the band. This may be because I've not configured the EQ right (Enhance Control etc.) but I'm wondering if having a monitor pointing towards me will help. My question--can I use the SEND jack on the front panel off the amp to a powered monitor without messing with the 4 ohm connection to the AMPEG cabinet?

You should be able to use the Send jack to provide signal to a powered monitor.


You might also want to try elevating your 410 on a stool or box, that brings the cab up closer to your ear level.  A bass cab sitting on the floor mostly pushes its sound past your knees (I don't heat too well with my knees).  I either use my 410s in a stack, or put a single cab on a box to get it up closer to where my ears are.  Makes a world of difference!!

+1.  You need something pointed at your ears and the send jack will work with a powered monitor or combo just fine.

Steve, you may want to back off of the enhance, or better yet, turn it completely off. Boosting the Enhance sounds great when you are playing by yourself, but whenever playing with others, the more of it you use, less you can hear yourself. You may also want to boot your lower mids a bit.  It's not going to sound as good as boosting just the enhance, but when the band mates kick it in, you should be able to hear yourself much better in the mix.  A side bar is that you should be able to drive your speakers harder without farting with out the super lows the Enhance generates.

True dat!  Enhance is your friend a low volumes, but sucks power creating tones that contribute little to being heard in the mix, or hearing yourself in the mix in a band situation!!!
