: I have a Hartke 60 watt combo. Is there any power or compatibility issues associated with using the line out to go directly into the PA. The guy I play with (who owns the PA) is afraid the speakers wont handle the low frequencies and it will hurt the speakers.
There's absolutely no risk of frying the speakers or damaging the PA in any way. I used to play with a band where I had to do the same sometimes, and other times I also had to plug the bass directly into the console. No damage was made, although the singer would complain because his voice was somewhat "fighting for space" with the bass and didn't come out too well -which in your case can be good or bad depending on how much you love or hate your singer's voice :).
Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,
