My setup. Help me!

  1. Ok today i picked up a
    Peavey TNT115 (150watts)

    i have done a little experimenting and found
    that by patching my 15watt amp to the Peavey i get alot more volume and sound freedom.

    Here is how i did it

    Bass plugs into Tuner-In. from Tuner-Out it plugs into 15watt Input jack. from 15watt Headphone jack it goes into
    Peavey Low input jack.

    when i have it all setup properly i get a hell of alot more volume. On the Peavey i have a DDT light which goes on when im stressing the speaker to much, so i do limit myself but im still getting more noise!.

    what i want to know will this do any damage to anything.

    Hmm... I would imagine that the signal going to the headphones can't be too huge... Actually on the series II cyclops by carvin the headphone jack doubles as a line out. If the same is true of your 15w amp, it is just becoming a preamp and your biggie is becoming the power amp. But I would not do this. The input signal going into your main amp may be way, way too big. If it hasn't blown up yet, that's great. But I wouldn't push your luck on something that it seems you don't really need.
