    i got this little rig off ebay a while ago, and it has the sweetest sound to it. I swear the tone is from heaven its self. my only problem is that, it is just a little 30w rig w/ a 10'' speaker, not nearly enought to compete with drums and marshall 2x12's. I have ben looking around for new amps for quite a while, and love the sound the new fender bassman's give off, but i think that i like my little amps sound better.

    to the question... is it possible to take my little amp, and hook it up to a poweramp, and then have it run a 4x10 speaker cab? I would like to dissconnect my little speaker if at all possible, bnecause it is HORRIBLE, really buzzy. so basically, i would want to use my little amp as a preamp, and then get a power amp. Would i have to disconnect the existing poweramp circuits?
