    its this 'doable'? i mean, if i have a 10 combo, 30 watts RMS (don't know impedance though), could i use it with some 115 cab and get a decent volume/tone? whats better: some head plus cab or combo with cab?

    It could be done, providing you have a speaker out from your combo. It might not yeild great results with only a 30 watt power amp. Short of buying separate heads and cabs, you would be better off purchasing another combo and slaving one or stacking the two.

    It dependes on several things...

    If you plug another cab to your combo the total impedance will decrease and the amp. will work on a high power region that could sound with distorsion and since it just have 30W it could be dangerous.

    In another way, the combo's speacker just have 30W, so, the 115 cab should have aprox. the same.
