Possibly stupid rig

    I recently purchased a Traynor TS-50 amp (note: without B, so guitar amp).
    I'm thinking about hooking it up via line out to t.amp S150. It gives 250W in bridged mode. So far so good?

    Because the amp is (probably) not going to give me enough bass, so I'm thinking (this is very it gets possibly stupid and you guys step in) using a small mixer and running another signal from my effects (LS-2) to passive DI to mixer. I there mix it to appropriate and send it to the power amp. It's a stereo amp, but in bridged mode I can only use one channel.

    Does this make sense?

    Other (possibly more sane) option is just bi-amping and hooking the TS-50 to more appropriate bass cabinet.

    Speakers are the key here. Either amp should sound fine hooked up to a proper bass cab. Neither will sound fine hooked up to a guitar cab/speaker for long at much volume. The amps will be safe.. The guitar speaker will not.

    You want to hook up a Guitar amp with a power amp and use the LS-2 to add a dry signal to your amps pre?
    That sounds like a lot of hassle for a result that might sound mediocre.
    Either the amp sounds good, then use it or it does not sound good, then don't.

    Sure, all of it is bit of a hassle. I'm adding the dry signal to the power amp via mixer. This probably won't work like I'm hoping it would AND I probably can't be bothered to take this show on the road. But for experimentation and possibly recording.

    If I was smart (and had money) I would buy Tronographic Rusty Box. Same thing, but in a pedal form.
    Unfortunately I'm not smart.

    Even for a guitar amp, the line out should be pretty much full-range. The signal to your power amp will probably be fine.
