    So I was going through my local CL and saw a few 2x12 guitar cabs for sale. Would running a bass head through them be smart, or dumb?

    Search for "guitar cabs" or "Guitar Cab" or other variations in this forum and you'll get some more detailed explainations of why it's a bad idea.

    Joker puts the main jist of it out there though

    You could always buy one and find out for yourself. That way, the next time someone asks this question you can tell them firsthand what happens. :eek:
