    Hi guys. I have an fender rumble 100 15" and i just bought myself a new amp head so i thought if it's possible to take out the amp part of the combo and rewire it so it's just a cab to use with my amp?

    Yes, I know it is possible because I have a 12 inch SWR cabinet that used to be a Workingman's 12. I use it for an extension cabinet and it's fine.

    I'm not handy with electronics, so I have no idea how it is done.

    OK anyone else who got some input for me
     
  4. Yeah it's possible. Most combos have the "amp" section in a seperate cavity from the speaker. Soooo you'd just remove the amp, install an input jack and wire it to the speaker. Of course it's not that easy but that's essentially what you'd need to do. It's pretty basic electrical work, go to barnes and nobles and pick up a book or search the net for a tutorial.
