These are usually in parallel with the low-Z transformer to the XLR taken off the side. Take the send into one and the return to the other, and you have a great "side tap" for processing to the board, while still being able to use your amp, whether for monitor, or to mike to get a different tone. Granted, it may need further processing to get what you want, since there is no speaker emulation at that point, but it provides a great take-off point. I've even used a similar setup in taking a Hammond spinit organ to a board that otherwise didn't have any line out -- just used adaptors on the RCA plugs at the foot pedal, which is nothing more than a fancy volume knob.

I immediately switched back to the compressed round wounds from Rick and will stick to those. I subsequently sold two remaining packs of new Pyramids to the lead singer from a nice band here in The Netherlands (The Madd); but, he later responded to me that he was very dissapointed with the strings (like I was; however, I had warned him before the purchase!).
I'm sure others can produce wonderful sounds with their flatwounds, but clearly I didn't. In my opinion, the wound strings need to ring too, and that's what the flats just did not do in my hands (and they were as stiff as a flagpole).
