    Hi all,
    Please don't flame me if the answer to my question is already on here somewhere :confused: I used the search engine, but couldn't find the answer to my question. I have a Hartke kickback 15 that I used to use all the time. I've recently upgraded my rig to a QSC1602 pushing an EA 1x12. Now I just have the Hartke sitting around. I might use it as a practise amp, but I was wondering whether it made any sense for me to convert it into a 1x15 cab and power it out of the other channel of the QSC. The Harkte is currently something like a 120watt speaker. Since the cab is already tuned to a 15, would have any luck sticking a better 15 speaker in there, attaching a speakon connector, and driving like an extention. I might also wire it so that I could still use it as a practise amp if I want.

    Feel free to tell me this is a stupid idea. I don't really need this, and I don't want to throw money at something that isn't going to sound good.

    Thanks for your help!
