    Can this be run through a PA?

    Not directly, since it doesn't have a balanced DI jack. You would have to mic it and/or use an external DI box.

    --ok, on a lot of amps that i've seen there's a jack for the bass guitar itself, then there's a jack that says "speaker" is THIS where you plug the PA into?

    --ABOUT how much would an external DI box cost? where can i get one? will it be hard to figure out how to use it?

    thanks

    No, that's for an external speaker cab. A DI jack looks like the one on the left in this picture:

    This one,

    Whirlwind IMP 2 (larger image), is pretty good (I've used it twice with my passive J). Quite cheap too, it lists at $60 but you can get it for much less. There are a lot of good DI's out there, and I guess the SansAmp BassDriver by Tech21 NYC would be the most popular one around here.

    Such a device is a pretty easy thing to use: you plug in your bass into it, and run an XLR cable from the box to the mixing console. If you have an amplifier on stage, you can run another cable from the box to the amp as well, to use the amp as a monitor.

    Hope this helps (and I hope I got it right :)).

    so considering i want to use the PA and my amp, i'll have to get 2 regular instrument cables and 1 XLR cable?

    (XLR/lo-z is a microphone cable, right?)

    Correct.
