Setup/Connections Q: Is there a direct out on the Lowdown 400/750 HD series amplifiers? A: Yes, there are balanced line level XLR outputs on the on the Lowdown 400/750 HD series. The line level XLR output is not affected by the output volume of the amplifier, and will send a cabinet simulated tone to your mixing console.

A: Yes, an external preamp can be connected to the instrument input of the Lowdown, be sure to send an instrument level signal rather than a line level signal to avoid clipping and/or damage to the Lowdown. An external pre-amp can also be run into the MP3 input jack, which would relegate the Lowdown amplifier to a powered speaker. Q: How do I connect an external cabinet to a Lowdown 400/750 HD?

Q: What if I do not want the cabinet tone but rather a unaffected tone (like a DI Box?) A: If you desire an unaffected bass tone in addition to the cabinet simulated tone you will want to go into a DI box and send the DI signal to the mixing console, and have the instrument output of the DI go into the instrument input of the Lowdown amplifier. Q: What controllers work with the Lowdown series? A:The FBV series is the correct controller for the Lowdown series, we recommend the FBV Shortboard or FBV Express. The FBV (Longboard) is not optimized for use with the Lowdown family of amplifiers, and the FBV2 is not compatible with a certain amount of early LowDowns.
