    No, not the people kind.

    The manual for my head says that I can use the line outputs, 1xlr, 1 1/4", to drive a slave amp. Does this mean that if i buy simply a power amp, that I could use my head as the pre and the other as another power w/ different cabs.

    for example: My amp puts out 200 watts @4ohms. If i run this into one four ohm cab. Use the line out into a power amp which say is also 200 watts@4ohms, and that into a 4 ohm cab, that I would then be pushing 400watts?? If so that would be great. Any suggestions on some good, fairly transparent power amps/brands? (I won't be buying for a while, but to have something in mind)

    thanks,
    josh
