stupid question about power amps....

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by scorpionldr, Nov 27, 2004.


  1. if you have a head with a specified amount of wattage, but you have a line out on your amp, is it possible to hook up to a power amp for extra wattage?

    If you use it to drive a separate loudspeaker, yes.
     
  4. so i'd prettymuch just turn on the head, lineout to the power amp, and then hook up my cabs up to the power amp?
