    I think I finally understand heads. a head is basically a replacement for the stock electronics in an amp? meaning I could go out, buy a 100 watt speaker driver, then hook a 100 watt head up to it, and it would work, and have 100 watts, and if i hooked a 200 watt head to a 300 watt driver, it would have 200 watts, right? but then how do you hook up a head to a normal cab, do you just unhook the speaker wire from the stock electronics and then run wire to the head? :eyebrow:
     
  2. You are getting combos and cabs mixed up. Combos have a head and a cab in the same unit; you cannot hook up an external head to a combo usually.

    aha, but I'm right about the watts?
     
  4. With watts, you want to match as close as you can, but its not overly important. Whats more important is cab efficency, as in decibals per watt. You can power any cab with any head as long as the impedances match.
