Default Mbox Pro 3 Phantom Power On and Using DI

Hi all! I'm hoping someone can answer this question, as I'm cautious about damaging my equipment.

Using an Mbox 3, I need to connect a condenser mic and a DI to track an acoustic guitar with a pickup. These will be on the XLR inputs. However, if I turn on Mbox phantom power for the mic, how will that affect the DI, if power is being sent back to it through the XLR?

Will it cause the DI signal to overdrive the input?

Will the DI (UA Solo 610) will ignore the power and the signal not be affected?

Is it possible that the DI could be damaged from the 48v being sent back to it?

Thanks in advance!
