Ok, being somewhat new to the whole thing. I had an Ampeg BA 115 HP 210 Watts. Well something fried out and it doesn't work anymore. I'm looking at two different amps Bugera BXD12 1x12 1000 watt and a Peavy TKO 15 Tour series 400 watt. Both are pretty identical as far as what's on the amp. The Peavey has a 7 band EQ I'm not really familiar with Bugera. I really do like the sound on that. Okay my question is welcome have effects loops earphone jacks. But both of them have DIs to go to a board. Both of them have speaker out one quarter inch jacks. I imagine for a second monitor on the opposite side stage. My question is with that speaker out. I can't run a cabinet off of that right I have to have a power cab. Using that isn't like splitting a signal correct. See what I am thinking about is later on getting a 4x10 to add to my 15. I know what everybody's going to say just buy a head in a separate cabinet. But I don't have that kind of money right now and I need to get this done quickly. I have a chance of getting in the band. But I have to have amp. I tried out yesterday in the middle of my tryout my amp blew out.
