There are two approaches:
- place the X3 in the FX Loop of your amp. Use only the X3 FX that you want - do not use an amp model.
- search this forum for the '4 cable method' (4CM). It offers more flexibility and is well described elsewhere.

But how's the correct connection flux about "X3 in FX Loop of the amp"?
And what about the output settings? i don't know the difference between them to know if im in the correct option or not

Connect your guitar to the amp's input. Connect your amp's FX Send to the X3L's Guitar input and connect the X3L''s L (Mono) 1/4" output to the amp's FX Return input. For best results set your amp's FX Send output level to amp/instument (not line level).
In your X3, set your Tone Input to Guitar. You should experiment with different Live Output settings for the 1/4" Live outputs; there's no single 'correct' setting - use whatever sounds best to you.
There's actually another simple 2-cable method: you could reverse the above setup and place the amp in the X3's FX Loop. In that case, connect the X3 FX Send to the Amp's guitar input, and the amp's Line Out to the X3 FX Return. COnect your guitar to the X3 Guitar input.
