Hey guys, So I recently bought a Matrix gt1000fx power amp going to my Orange PPC212. I use a POD HD Pro as a preamp. I'm having trouble with stage volume however. Here are the 2 options I have for running my rig in mono: I can either do a line out (hot output) send from my Pod to the Matrix input A and output A. Or I can do amp out (low output) send from my Pod to the Matrix input A and output bridged I prefer the second option but I am scared because the Bridged Matrix at 16 ohms is something crazy like 650 Watts RMS; where as my Orange is a mere 120 Watts. I don't want to damage my baby. I can reach the same volume with the first option but the 2nd options sounds so much better at higher volumes. Also isn't better gain staging to have a lower signal going into my Power Amp than a hotter signal? One last question, the level indicator lights on the Matrix, are they reflective of the signal level going to my cab or coming from my POD?
