    If you want more power, you'll have to get a more powerful amplifier. Simple as that.

    I find that funny you need more than that... but you may wanna try the Carvin RL600(600 watts bridged at 4 ohms) or RL1000(1000 watts bridged at 4 ohms) heads another option would be getting a Preamp/Poweramp setup.
  4. you can't add watts to your existing amp with the power amp, all the wattage will come from the power amp. so if you want 600 watts, you'll need a 600 watt power amp, not a 200 watt one.

    some send effects are "in-line" loops which can run into an external power amp - you'd just never return and are running it as a preamp into the new poweramp --
    but since your's is a "sidechain" send effects I'm pretty much gonna agree with dancehallclasher -
    unless there is someone who can figure out a way to go in there and get the pre-amp signal out.
    Good luck.

    if you had a stereo cabinet, like an ampeg 8x10 that is actually 2 4x10s, you could run one power amp into one side and the head into the other, right?

    Yes you could. I'm not familiar with that head, but you could come out of an effects send, preamp out or even a DI output if it has a 1/4" jack on it and send it to an outboard power amp.
