U have a line 6 what ? its very easy but id need to know which one you have
#3
I think (THINK!) that you can hook your amp up right into the mixer. that would work (if its possible and im not just and idiot)

Also, I think (think) DI boxes sometimes have effects. also some mixers do, dont know about distortion though.
GUITARS
Burswood Acoustic
Squier Affinity Strat
Fender Tele Deluxe
BASS
Ibanez Jetking bass
AMPS
Marshall MG30DFX
Peavey max 158 bass amp
Fender Bassman 250
1979 Carvin of some sort
And some pedals

just mic ur amp. Better sound quality.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

Some people (eg. the pros you described) connect their Line 6s directly to the PA via XLR Out, which your Spider doesn't have.

If your PA has 1/4 inputs you could maybe run it from the direct out to the PA. But then no sound would come from the amp.


but would the distortion still come through the pa?

That wouldent work either, that would take the load off the amp and it will blow a fuse, or the soundboard. I highly doubt the Line6 Spider 3 has an FX loop, or any kind of line level line out, so with your amp it is just impossible unless you mic it.

Your amp has a headphone output that is also intended for use as a line output.
You can connect that to a line-in on your PA mixer.
Yes, you will get distortion.
No, you will not hear sound from the amp's speaker.
