Revv D20 and Powercab + ?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if these 2 can be hooked together and how would you go about it? I'm thinking about getting the Revv G20.

The PowerCab is intended to take Line Level input from a preamp device such as a Helix.  Most tube amps can connect to it via the Effects loop, but would need a load box on the speaker output to avoid blowing the transformer. 

 

Interestingly, the Revv D20 looks likes it actually has a built in load box which would allow you to output a Line Level signal without plugging into a speaker.  Based on this, you should theoretically be able to connect the two.  That's pretty cool.

 

First, push the button on the back to select the "Internal Load", or leave the speaker disconnected (it supposedly automatically loads it if nothing is connected). 

 

Then take the Two Notes Balanced Ouptut and connect it to the PowerCab.  This output has it's own Power Section and Speaker IR from the amp, so you'd want to set the PowerCab to FRFR to act like a PA speaker, as you would with the Helix if you had cabinet sims enabled in it.

 

Alternatively, you should be able to take the FX Send output instead and run that into the PowerCab line in.  This will not have the Power Section or Speaker IR however, so you would then want to choose a speaker model in the PowerCab or run it in pure speaker mode with no tweeter.  It may be possible to get the IRs used in the Revv D20 from the company and load those into the PowerCab directly.  In which case they'd presumably sound identical with either option.  Though the balanced output would be better due to lower noise floor and more output from balanced connections.
