    Let’s see those guitars

    Blowing the fuse on the AX8

    The fuse could be a surface mount type. There are some that are through hole mounting and are a shade of brown in color. IIRC, they have the rating of the fuse on top, i.e. 1A 125V...been a while since I looked at one.

    AX8 Off Load CPU resources, Reverb ?

    No drawbacks that I'm aware of. It would be the same output that FOH is getting. You wouldn't want to be messing with the output volume as that would change the level that FOH is getting.

    AX8 Off Load CPU resources, Reverb ?

    I'm assuming that the 1/4" jacks next to the XLR outputs are in parallel. If so, you could run those into your onstage monitor(s). You won't have separate control of the output at the AX8, but you could certainly turn up your monitor rig!:)

    Hooking up to PA power amp, and failing !

    Not all Speakon connectors will accept 1/4” speaker plug. The first Speakon connectors I saw that would accept a 1/4” plug were green in color to differentiate them from the regular black connectors. Hopefully the amp has info on it about the connector.
