  • Plugging an Anthem pickup directly into a powered PA speaker?

    I own a pair of JBL PRX812 1,500 watt powered PA speakers that I will be using for live sound at a wedding where I am playing my acoustic guitar. I cannot find a data sheet on the LR Baggs website that gives me the exact output signal from the Anthem pickup system. Would I have to use a DI box or some kind of mixer/interface to get the signal up to or bucked down to the level a powered PA speaker requires?

    I would recommend using a preamp/DI if you are able to. The Anthem is an active system and should work by itself, but using an additional preamp with a variable gain will help to optimize the signal before going directly into the speaker.
