    Can it ever be safe to run vocals through bass cabs, because the speakers we usually use for the pa broke and we have abolutly no money.

    It will be safe but it won't sound good. Be nice, maybe Santa will help.
     
  3. If your bass cab has tweets or mids it might not sound too bad. I used my EA's for stereo speakers once at a party, they sounded pretty good. And my regular stereo spkrs were JBL's, I'm very fussy about that.

    But EA's are considered "hi-fi" cabs, pretty full range and relatively flat response.

    What kind of bass cabs are you using? Brand and configuration matter, like a 4x10, 2x15, does it have midrange drivers, tweeters, etc?

  5. It won't hurt anything. As far as sound goes, well, it will sound better than no amp at all. :D
