    I'm an idiot when it comes to effects processors. I'm going to order the line 6 pod hd500x and i want to run it through my randall cab. I know i need a power amp but what else do i need? If you guys could make some recommendations on the gear and how to set it up i would really appreciate it.:shred:

    A speaker cable, and that's it. A power conditioner and small rack case would be nice additions, especially if your power amp is rackmountable, but it's not entirely necessary.

    Effectively just a high end power strip for your rack, unless you buy a high end model. I like having one for convenience. Not required, nice to have especially if gigging.
