Combo amp question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Stu hamm rules!, Aug 4, 2002.

  1. I own a carlsbro bassline 50, and as i may be gigging soon am considering upgrading it. My guitarist has a 50W amp also, so i think i will need 200W.

    Is it possible to plug a cabinet into it to make it louder (there is a socket called Aux: out)?

    or should i sell it and buy a 200W combo?

    I'm thinking an Aux: out would be the same thing as a line out/preamp out, in other words, not able to drive a cabinet. If you want more volume you'll need to get a new amp.
  3. ok, i think ur right, thanks.
  4. No. You can't plug a speaker directly into an Aux socket. If it's an output you could probably plug a slave into the socket and drive another speaker with it.

    In a kind of a way I do something similar with a vintage Laney 50 Watt valve amp, a 240 Watt slave and a 1 x 15" cab. It works a treat.

  5. it may sound stupid, but what is a slave?
