If you watch that video.. at about 2:08 Ben starts talking about something they use instead of mic-ing up the amps. They plug something into the output.

Does anyone know what this is? I can't tell exactly what he's saying but I'd really like to know. I've seen BSC a few times and their live sound is great.
He said D.I, meaning a D.I box I imagine. It's basically a preamp that converts the signal into a form that the PA can use. I've used one in the studio for recording bass without an amp before and it sounds great in that context

Always up for some C4C, been compared to Frank Turner, The Cure's Robert Smith and Bruce Springsteen so check out my stuff if you like the sound of that
it's a kind of direct box works great if you don't want to mic your amp one less mic one less mic stand one less mic cable....
ahhh! Palmer! That's the bit I couldn't understand.

It sounds clear as anything now that you've said it. Thanks for the help
Palmer's PDI-03 Speaker Simulator is legendary.

They make a noticeable difference in sound quality if you are using a direct box.
