    If you don't have an extension speaker out then you can't unless you disconnect the internal speaker and run a cable to the Peavey. Then you still have an issue of impedance. If the Peavey is a 4 ohm cab and you amp is rated at 8ohms minimum then you can't without damaging the amp.

    What Peavey cab do you have?

    It sounds like you can plug in another speaker, but then you can't use the original. 30-watts is perfect for bedroom practice, but if you're looking to play with drummers or for a large room, you'll want something more powerful. Since you're looking to be wise with your cash, start keeping an eye on your local craigslist ads (craigslist.com) while saving up for a bigger rig. Combo? Stack? Wait for whatever pops up cheap.
