    You can place blocks in front of amp or in the the loop. You can run them in series or parallel. Routing section there are other options also. Pull your manual out and grab a cup of coffee and read that section.

    You should be able to do this with the relays. Go to FX8 manual and look up relay section. Looks like there is a jack in the back for switching. I am sure someone with this amp will chime in. I would revise title to say "Bad Cat Black Cat 30R "
