Not sure if you already edited your patch in this way, but when using any pod device in conjunction with a traditional amp, even when bypassing the pre-amp consider these things:
1. Setting the global output settings to (in your case) "Stack Power Amp"
2. Defeat the cabinet model (select "no Cab")
3. Trying both the full amp models (w/ no cab) and pre-amp only (w/ no cab) models
If you are using the full amp models experiment with the power amp settings. As well, some of the models get "cloudy" sounding if the power stage volume and/ or bias are set too high.
While I do not have a JCM 900, I did have a similar experience when first attempting to use the pod in this way.
For the record, I was using a HD400 into a Carvin Legacy effects return with good results and have since graduated to a HD Pro into a Carvin DCM power amp which is even more dreamy.
Hope this helps in some way
