    Depends what heads you have. If you have Markbass amps as indicated, you run a cord from the tuner out to the input of the other on LM II's. I would follow the directions in the manual which can be downloaded from the internet.
     
  4. If you want the entire rig to sound the same, and your amps have effects loops.. you would run the effects send from the first amp, to the effects return of the second one. Making the second amp a slave amp, the tone would all be controlled from the first amp.

    Note however that all the connections described above assume you are using separate speaker cabs for each amp. If you have only one speaker cab, you cannot combine two heads into it.
     

  8. You can with a A+B NOT with an A/B Option

    I'm not sure what you mean there. A+B would mean "A and B at the same time" right? You can't do that. A/B typically means "A or B but not both", which you can do, but you have to be sure to find an A/B box that is designed for that level of wattage, IOW not just a regular old DOD A/B or anything like that.
