I just got my first bass and amp to start learning how to play. I just got a cheap $100 15w amp from Guitar Center and was wondering if I could use something as an alternative so I don't have another bulky speaker lying around and I portability isn't an issue. I already have some stereo speakers (that my dad gave me; they were high end speakers in the 90's) and a receiver, so what do I need to connect my bass to my receiver?
