my situation is this, i want to have three separate channels. one is clean , one with distortion and effects, and another for clean with effects. i have a Carvin R1000 head that will run the clean tone, and i want to a/b it with an ampeg V-9 (very old ampeg) and use another a/b for the distortion channel and clean channel of the amp, which i have already been sucsessful in doing. i will have my effects before the a/b for the ampeg so i can have both clean and distorted channels with effects or one separte clean channel, no effect. kind of like this: is htere a problem with running the two heads into a y splitter then into one 8x10 cab? it only has one input, and thats for all 8 speakers. will the amps be fighting eachother for the cab? are there circutry problems with this. im not going to try it until im sure it wont hurt anything. sometimes i will be using both amps (for a wet/dry mixed signal) thankjs for any help. this just seems risky and i thought id ask.
