Well, looks like that makes more sence than what I just wrote. Some times
its hard beeing dyslectic. I was sure you wanted the same signal going out
of the boomerang to the two amps and then use the 4*10 as a live boost.
In that case my advise would give you that result. However wanting 
else my advice is pretty worthless, sorry : )

Still, I really recommend the effectloop mastervolume control.
