Is it possible? If so, would it sound good? Would I just hook up the 2:90 to the power amp in section of the Spidervalve?
I'm asking because I can get a 2:90 for dirt cheap from a friend. I eventually want to use it to power an axe fx.

You cant hook a power amp into an FXloop like that, you will screw one or both pieces of equipment.

Isn't the power amp in the SV considered the part that makes it worthwhile in the first place?

Yeah the power amp is actually really nice.

The only way to do what TS is asking safely is to go: SV FX send>Mesa power amp>cab.

But remember you will need a cab for the sv to also be connected to or you can blow the OT. Unless you can safely run the sv in stand by mode for only the Preamp DI.

Would it sound better if I ran the 2:90 into a pod hd pro?

You mean the POD HD into the power amp

and yes it would sound better

Since the SV power amp seems to be nice (Just based on the knowledgeable people in this thread), I think you're going about this backwards. Get a better preamp/multifx to plug into the FX return of your spidervalve. I don't see why you couldn't just use the Axe-FX with your SV like that.

Why not just use the spider valve?

Im not sure I get what you're trying to do here other than blow up some equipment if I read what you wrote right.

I really like the versatility of the SV, but does not cut through very well live. I'm trying to find an affordable way to keep versatility of the SV while being able to cut through live.

You only have a few options, add a shit tonne of mids to your sound via onboard EQ or a pedal. Or use your HD 500 with the Mesa Poweramp. Your other options include buying new equipment.

It's not your Mesa power amp that's going to solve the mix issue, that problem comes from your preamp, which is mediocre in terms of it's clarity in a live situation.

What you need to do is program the preamp properly. The stock patches are crap. That's why it isn't cutting through, it's not the power amp's fault at all. You're looking at the wrong end.

i would but the spider valve doesnt have an fx loop

Since when? The SV certainly does have an FX loop. It is right on the back panel, I know I owned one for several yrs

The labels are sometimes confusing. "Power Amp In" actually means it's the input of the power amp on the SV, haha.

2:90 and an Axe Fx is beastly! It's a great investment if you eventually plan to go rack. I ran an Eleven rack into my 50/50 before I eventually got an Axe Fx to use it with. Excellent sounds both ways, but definitely Mesa flavored. If it's dirt cheap, get it!
