    Mesa mpulse and epifani ul502 to two separate cabs. I like the response of one cab more than the other once and a while. So, if I had a small gig is it ok to mix the amps but only have the one going to a cab?
     
  2. Huh ?

    Not very clear what you are trying to ask or do.

    Sorry, I had surgery on my right thumb so left handed only typing is difficult.

    I am mixing two amps that are each powering two different cabs. For a smaller gig I would like to only bring one cab, but I like the tone of mixing. Is it safe to run the amp mixed without it running through a cab? I am essentially using it as a preamp.

    Depends on the amps. Most solid state amps can be run with out a cab attached.

    Yes you could run that with out a cab, and send the DI to the PA.

    Just DO NOT connect both amps to one cab. If that's where this is going.

    I"m seriously lost. If amp 2 is connected to the bass but not to a cab, how in the world does it add anything to the sound being projected onto the stage/into the room? Presumably I'm missing something simple here . . .
