    I'm wondering it its possible to make a simple homemade bass amplifier, and if so where i can get information on such a thing......

    There are tons of sites around. This is a simple tube guitar amp build-it-yourself site that will give you an idea of what you are in for:

    And this place has a lot of do-it-yourself info:
