    I friend my Ashdown MAG 400 last nite. Touched the back with a live speaker wire connected to another head. Saw sparks and then the speakers went crazy.

    Until it gets fixed or I buy another one, can I use my 200 watt PA head as a bass amp? It's a Kustom head.

    Probably-check the ohm load. I am not sure if it will sound too good, but those old heads can push a cabinet okay. My old bass player used to play through an ancient Peavey p.a. head (complete with giant knobs)and matching column speakers (4 upright 8's). I can't say it sounded good, but we had bass.
