    I want a growly, deep mid/low end, and a sheely buzzy distorted high end. I'm not getting that out of my Ampeg 2x10 200 watt combo. I want to get a 1x15 or a tube head. I was wondering if I could run my highs into the 210 combo, and distort them. While running my lows into the 1x15+head. Would this work? How would I do this?

    Sure, get the appropriate equipment to multiply your signal x2, then send one to each head as you please...

    something like a Y splitter, be it a cable or a box tha allows you to switch between or use two outputs...

    So the 15 gets a clean signal but the 2x10 gets the distorted signal?

    How's this. Get a Sansamp DI/Bass driver and use it for distortion. It has 2 outputs, one is clean but one contains the distorted effect. The distorted output goes to the 2x10 combo. The clean output goes to the second amp then onto the 15.
