    Ive had this for some time and have been thinking about loads of differnt possibilties.

    On the back of my laney is a juck plug that says 'external loudspeaker 8 0hm minimum impendence'

    Does this mean that i can stick an 8 0hm cab under my amp at the minute and it will be powered? IF so this would mean id be getting more power from my amp, i have farted around with number and come to the conclusion that i would then be sucking a little less than 100 watts from my amp, would this be correct? Also, would 100 watts be enough for smallish venues, it would really only be being used as a stage monitor as i would go line out to the PA.
    Thanks in advance guys.

    Yes, you can plug in an extra cab of not less than 8 ohms into that jack, and it will be powered by your amp.

    100 watts would suffice for stage volume, but you might want to keep the low end turned down a bit to avoid clipping if you are pressing it too hard.

    excellent, i dont really like too much low end anyway. i like clarity i usually have my treble turned up past 3 o'clock mid between 12 and 3 and bass usually around 12 o'clock....

    Thanks.
