ideally you need to plug your HD500 into a DT50 amp using L6 link, a PA system, a normal guitar amp using its power amp input or FX return socket or if you really have to you need to plug it in to the front input of your amp,, which should be permamently set to the cleanest possible sound and flattest EQ settings (all tone controls at 12 o'clock) . The amp is just an amplifier, you should not change channels on the amp when using a modeller such as the HD500.
The HD500's output mode should be set to whatever it is plugged into - so Combo power Amp, Combo front, Studio Direct etc...
Use the 1/4" mono output to supply your guitar amp. If your amp has a CD/MP3 input, you could use that as the input and set the HD500 to Studio Direct.
