    We have a small party gig tonight, and the guitarist asked if I could set my little Peavey Minx on his side of the drums as a bass monitor.

    Is there a simple (no rewiring) way to connect a Peavy TNT combo amp to the Minx.

    Volumes won't be high, but he came up with this Minx-bass-monitor idea.

    Anyone? :confused:

    Line out (preamp out) -> line in (poweramp in or FX return).

    NEVER plug the speaker out of an amp into another amp!!!!

    If the TNT has an effects send, you could patch that directly to the Minx's front input.

    would it be possible to use the effects out on a combo, to run into a power amp, and connect the power amp to come extension cabs?

    leading to the combo acting as a pre amp for the extension cabs, and providing pwer to its internal speakers, and the power amp, using the combo as a preamp and using its own power to drive extension cabs?

    nothing, that was with the line out. don't hook up the SPEAKER OUT to the input of another amp.
