    I've ordered my Ashdown Electric blue with 15" today.
    I'm using an Electric Blue (on loan) with 12" at the moment.
    Question is...can I link the 2 together?
    I thought maybe use the D.I. out of the 12 straight into the 15.
    Would it work? - Will I do any damage?
    Anyone know?
    :confused: :confused:

    Good question!!!! I noticed a distinct lack of extension cab outputs etc.!!!

    I didn't get a manual with mine but when I exchange my duffer for a good one - hopefully tomorrow, I'll see if it says anything about it.

    I'll ask the bass salesman too!

    Hmm, I guess the line out would work - I don't think that there'll be any damage! Maybe you'd put the line out into the effects return part of the amp - that way they will both effectively use the first amps preamp and independently put the signal through their power amps!!

    Where's our resident tech freak Joris?? He'd know!!! I don't want to go give you info that'll blow up the amps!

    In fact, why not contact Ashdown directly on:-


    www.ashdownmusic.co.uk

    They'll know!! You an also order a vinyl cover for your new amp - I just did!

    Thanks Johnny,
    Mark from Ashdown just mailed me back and said "Line Out" - so I guess I'll try that!
