    Can you use the Phil Jones Briefcase BBC or Briefcase Ultimate BG-200 with the new C2 unpowered cabinet using just the battery inside the Briefcase?

    The battery powers the amplifier. The amplifier provides power to the speakers you connect to it. Make sure that the speaker load is appropriate for the amplifier. Battery charge longetivity might be reduced if you're using more power.

    Michael Albronda from Phil Jones e-mailed this morning confirming pretty much exactly what @abarson said.

    As to the speaker load:
    1. The Briefcase Ultimate BG-200 is a 2 x 5", 160-watt amp;
    2. The output of the BG-200 rises to 200 watts when used with an extension;
    3. The C2 is a 2 x 5", 200watt, 8-ohm speaker cab.
    So that looks appropriate to me. Plus Michael stated in his e-mail that this combination will work so I think I’m good. He did say that battery life could potentially be cut in half, however.

    My only problem now is that I own neither the amp nor the cabinet, LOL.
