Using bass with the DT50 Flip Top bass model?
by theTaNKisnowhere on 2013-02-10 07:51:54.4340


So this is probably a stupid question, but as I can't find an answer in the knowlage base, I thought I'd ask and find out for sure.

I see in the new DT50 firmware (v2.0) that there is a bass model, the Flip Top. Does this mean that using the Flip Top model you can play a bass through the DT50 or is this just for those lucky enough to own a variax?

I'm aware that using a bass through a normal guitar amp can be bad for the amp, but as this is not a normal amp and as Line 6 has added a bass model to the list, I'm just wondering what the go is. I haven't updated the firmware yet as I don't have a MIDI/USB interface, but I will as soon as I get one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I'm not easily finding any documentation about the frequency range of my DT25 speaker either, especially on the Line6 site.  I Googled the documented range of your Celestion Vintage 30, and it starts at 70hz.

I would just use some common sense and not turn up the volume too high if you're gonna play some really low tones-subs like on a 5 stringer...

I sure they made the model available, to be used though...

Thanks for your reply. And thanks for that info, I didn't know that. Or did I think to look outside of the Line 6 site. Probably an obvious oversite, even though you'd hope all Line 6 answers would be on the Line 6 site... yah well.

But that's what I was thinking, if they made the model available for the DT you'd think it's there to be used with a bass. But If the speaker range starts at 70Hz and the low E on a standard tuned bass is around 41Hz, then that seems like it's not ment to be used with a bass.

I'd just like to know for sure rather than jumping in (even cautiously) and doing something that will void my warrenty.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
