A question requiring your expertise: I want to use two SWR LA combos, an LA12 with an LA15 together - sort of a 200W "mini stack" for small gigs.
I used a Morley A-B-Y pedal box (the Y channel delivering both amps to my bass). Then I unplugged the A-B-Y and tried the same setup using just a simple Y cable that has two MALE 1/4" jacks (one for the input jack of each amp) and one FEMALE 1/4" plug (where I plug my bass.) Both the A-B-Y box and the Y connector cable seemd to work well.
QUESTION: What does an A-B-Y box give me over the simple Y cable? Is it just the switching cabability? Are the electronics in an A-B-Y box ensuring better amp performance or load balancing or something, or is it just basically a switch version of a Y cable?
I don't need the switching, I just want to combine two amps so a Y connector cable is a lot less fuss & muss. THOUGHTS?
