    I think you will get an impedance mismatch. Why not invest in an ABY pedal and run either or both systems?

    You can take a line out of the head, and power up the 200 watt amp with it. The connection is made at LINE LEVEL. The speaker out of the head them drives the 4x10.

    The mismatch in cabinet volumes probaby makes this a wasted effort though. You could run the combo as a dedicated bass monitorfor your drummer, guitarist, keyboardist.. who ever is on the other side of the stage.

    What are you actually trying to accomplish by doing this ?

    I figured this would not work. My friend wants to buy my 2x10 combo and hook it up into his 4x10 cab with 400W head so that he can have a 6x10. I told him I would have to find out if it can be done, because I really wanna sell my combo! lol.

    I told him just to get a regular 4x10 speaker cab or a 1x15 to hook up to his set up...

    Thanks for answering my questions :D
