    No, in my experience car amps don't sound good under any situation (outside of cars of course). They are crackly and get really hot. You could buy a real poweramp and try this... although you may have to pad the line out because it's a hot signal.

    I'm a kid too (15). I think in you would be happier trading in what ya got and upgrading it all. Wiring tons or stuff together like that will probably fail you sometime and possibly ruin everything.

    If you wanted to add a power amp but still have it sound like your pb100 you can run a cable out of the effects loop into the input of the power amp. You can then put hook up whatever speaker cabinets ya want to the power amp. BUT if you were to add the ht150, you probably wouldn't notice any change in volume as the wattage increase is insignificant.

    I really don't think it would work good, I wouldn't advise or try it. But thats just me, I'm no expert.
     
  10. Again, I have no clue what you're talking about, man. You write so messy, I can't follow you. PLEASE take your time to make complete sentences with commas and periods. Maybe even capitals.

    Unless you're a foreign immigrant or someone who lives out in a West Virginian trailor up on cinder blocks, there's no excuse for your lack of sentence formatting =] Not trying to be harsh, but your posts are very hard to follow. Anyway, I agree with an earlier post about waiting and just upgrading. It'll save a lot of hassle in the future and you'll get much better sound.

    Sorry for this being another post picking holes in your grammar Benjamin, but it really is in your best interests to make your posts as clear and consise as possible. I've got to say I had to re-read your original post a few times before I actually understood it. Considering that some of the most informative and knowledgable posters here, such as Oysterman and Joris, aren't actually native English speakers, you really could be missing out on some good advice and shooting yourself in the foot.

    Anyway, enough pedancy. :) Back on topic, people...
