My Triple X sounds killer at low volumes, however, when I turn it up past 1/8th (sounds unbelievable at small room practice volumes) but over that, it has this uncontrollable presence.

No matter what I do, I can't get it to sound as good as low volumes. Can I control the presence with a EQ... if not, what can I use?

Do I need a different amp, because I'll sell the XXX because of this. I want good tones!

Another complaint, is this 120 watt combo amp Channel volume and master volume needs to be cranked up to 9 just to play with a band. WTF?

The Peavey XXX combos are only 40 watts, the head is 120.

Yeah, you can run an EQ in the loop, and it should help to shape your tone.
Peavey JSX 2x12
ESP Horizon NT-II
Ibz RG3EXQM - EMG 81/89
Ibz RG270 - Dimarzio PAF Pro/Mo' Joe
Dunlop Crybaby
Ibanez DE-7
EHX Small Clone
Boss NS-2

I also you the BBE Sonic Maximizer in the loop.

It's sounds grainy when I turn up the mids.

Check out this pedal... http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/MXR-KFK1-Kerry-King-Ten-Band-Equalizer?sku=151120&src=3WFRWXX

Good?

It's cool.. cause I just picked up a Mesa Boogie F 50.. so I can run two outs from the MXR KK-1 and run both the Mesa and XXX at the same time.

may i recommend the peavey 31 band eq. i tried both the mxr and the peavey today at GC and the Peavey sounds better and is 30 bucks cheaper. FOr the dual outputs maybe an aby box.
