    The rule is speaker cables for cabs, instrument cables for everything else!

    Yes, you can use them without damaging your equipment. You may be susceptible to a little more noise due to lack of shielding, but otherwise, you'll be fine. Just NEVER use instrument cables for speakers.

    A "little" more noise? Try it before you go to a gig with only speaker cables.
