Re: Re: Speaker 'load" / soak boxes for guitar amp heads? Ever better than a mic?-

Don't now about the others but the THD has a "Load" setting. It allows you to run the amp safely without a 'speaker load'... the THD is the load. The Hotplate has a line out w/ adjustable level so you can set it up to feed different things... console line in, effects, additional amp, whatever... I dig mine.
