A SEXY and relevant question.....

  1. Okay maybe not sexy, but I really want this question to be looked at. Okay I own the previous generation Bassman 100 with the 15" (when it had balls). My question is...Does my Bassman have enough power to send my sound from my Bassman to "X" Cabinet? What I was looking at was maybe lining out my Bassman to a Behringer 2x10" 500 watt cabinet @ 8-Ohm, but I do not know how heads and cabinets work....
    The specs to the Fender Bassman 100 are:

    Looks like the minimum impedance is 4 Ohms, and since the speaker is 4, you cannot add an extention cab. What you can do is take the line out and connect it to a power amp and hook a cab up to that.
     
  3. The Goliath Jr. uses 4 ohms. Would that work?
