I'm sure I'm overthinking this.... but, I'm curious (and someone else might be too).... I've got a MarkBass CMD151P combo that I'd like to be able to use a stand alone cabinet with a different head. This combo connects the head to the speakers via a 1/4 male plug hanging out of the back of the combo. (head can easily be disconnected in normal fashion) Would it be better to change that 1/4 male to a 1/4 female? Or, just use a $5 1/4 female to 1/4 female adapter (can you send speaker signals through those adapters without issues)? Or remove that 1/4 male & change it to a combo 1/4 & speakon jack? Or, use a box that has a 1/4 in and speakon outs? Why wouldn't a company just make it a female plug on the box and use a short cable to connect?
