you optimal tonal control. When you turn any of these knobs, the
display will briefly show the current settings of the Drive, Bass, Mid,

Rear Panel Controls & Connections
14. Preamp out/Power Amp In – PREAMP OUT is a pre-tube amp output
than can be used for all sorts of things. For one, you can drive a second
amp from the Spider Valve’s modeling pre, or you can use it as an
“effects send” to feed outboard effects. You can then use the POWER
AMP IN either as an input from another preamp or multi-effects unit
like the POD X3 Live or as a “series effects return”.
15.Direct Out – Provides full-time POD® -quality tone for studio-direct
recording or live performance. See the advanced users guide for more
details. The ground lift switch can be used to eliminate hum or buzz.
16.FBV – Connect a Line 6 FBV Express MkII™ for channel switching,
tap tempo, wah/volume control and tuner capabilities. Connect a Line
6 FBV Shortboard MkII™ controller for channel switching, effects
on/off control, wah/volume pedals, access to more channel memories,
tuner, and tap tempo. (Also compatible with original FBV series
controllers)
17. MIDI – Make program changes, send MIDI CC messages, and integrate
your amp into your existing MIDI rig. See our online advanced guide
for the more details and learn how MIDI can work for you.
18. Speaker Outs – Connect speakers here using speaker cables only. You
should only use one output (A, B, or C) at a time and never power the
amplifier up without speakers connected. If you want to silence the
speakers, use the Standby switch. The details are as follows:
112 and 212 Combos
Output A is for an 8-ohm speaker load and will let you hook up one
8-ohm speaker/cab
Output B is for a 4-ohm speaker load. You can either hook up one
4-ohm speaker/cab or two 8-ohm speakers/cabs.
HD100
Output A is for a 16-ohm speaker load and will let you hook up one
16-ohm speaker/cab.
Output B is for an 8-ohm speaker load. You can either hook up one
