Yes, I have searched.

What is the difference between putting it in front of a 5150 and in the FX-loop of a 5150? Have someone compared the difference?

Umm. Most people put it in front of the amp. That way it pushes the preamp harder. I'm not exactly sure what it would do in the effects loop (I'd imagine rather little), but you can try it.

in front - before the preamp, pushes it
fx-loop - after preamp and before poweramp, pushes the poweramp

Does it actually do that (effectively)? I've heard some people saying their OD's did nothing in the loop, at best making the signal weaker? I haven't tested it myself so I really wouldn't know tho.

You do know that lots of people tighten up their 5150s with an OD?


Wouldn't pushing the preamp be just the same as increasing the preamp gain, really?

No, not exactly. Boosters work a little differently, I can't explain why but usually they tighten the tone instead of just increasing gain.

Edit: I just realised you already knew that. But nevertheless.
