  2. It's a bad idea to connect instrument amplifiers to home stereo speakers. You are going to fry one sooner than later, particularly with a higher wattage amplifier.

    With a lower power amp you will probably fry it too by turning up past the point of clipping and then toasting the tweeter.

    I'd recommend you buy a bass speaker cabinet, and bypass the reciever, mixer and home stereo speakers.

    You should fill out your profile.

    I'm confused. You heard about this. You want to try it. You then know for a fact that you can do it. Then you've already done it.

    :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

    This sounds like a horrible way to amplify your bass. It makes me think you're going to end up blowing something up.

    If you can afford actual bass equiptment, I say buy it. If you can't and need to be creative...that's fine.

    or if you have the money to experiment...that's fine too.

    But if you need bass amplification....I recommend buying something that is guaranteed to work. I'm sure Sony's (or whoever) warranty won't cover that.

    I covered my recommendations for your amplification and speakers in the other thread that you posted today with that question.

    The correct spelling is "innvoat ive".

    Sorry, bass man evan, but one of my pet peeves is bad grammar and bad spelling. Nobody is perfect, but at least make some effort. It will help us to help you.
