    Ive seen this done and never knew how, im wondering i would be able to connect my Crate BT-350 (4 ohms-350 watts, 8 ohms-200 watts) and my Samsung Servo 500 (4 ohms - 25 watts). I would be running into a 4 ohm cabinet, Mesa powerhouse 1000. Is this possible, or can someone please tell me how to do it. Thanks..

    Use the effect send of one to connect to the effect return of the other.
     
  3. Yes, but running two heads into the same cabinet? That doesn't sound right to me.

    What are you trying to achieve by doing this?
     
  4. You cannot connect 2 different power amps into one cabinet.

    Not without damaging one or both amps.

    Anyway, even if you could do it, any contribution the 25 watt amp could make to the 350 watt amp would be insignificant.

    yikes I was thinking one of them was a combo.
     
  6. Syc, I was wondering *** you were thinking .... :D

    Short answer: It can't be done. Which is a good thing cause there's no possible benefit to doing it in this case.

    Then you can do what I originally suggested.

    Amp and cab #1's effect send> Amp and cab #2's effect return.
