    is it possible to hook up a 50 watt combo head through a pa poweramp, using the 50watt head as a preamp?

    It all depends my good man, what combo head? does the combo head have any "Out's" in the back? something like "Unbalanced" "XLR" Or "Balenced"? Give us some more info, we can help you.

    if it doesnt have any specialized outputs, use the headphone output.

    will the headphone out work with a direct input of the power amp?
  5. Well the ohms might be mis matched but it will work most of the time. If you don't have a line out you can get a DI with speaker input. Meaning you can plug your speaker output into the DI and the output from the DI into the power amp. I think Behringer makes a DI with a speaker in.
