    Greetings All, I made a pilrimage to the Good Will store today to drop off some household items and of course I had to browse while I was there.

    I noticed a small powered Yamaha Subwoofer from a cheapo surroud sound system for $10. I decided it might be a good size for a small bedroom practise amp. Having gotten it home and tried it out I can't say it's going to replace an "official" amp but it just may work out for a fairly low volume alternative to wearing headphones. It seems to reproduce the notes on my 4 string down to low E ok. With no horn it's not a slappers practise amp!

    Anyone else tried something like this?

    i did plug into some powered subwoofer using a radio shack adapter to plug my 1/4" cord into an rca input jack on the sub. the sound was - muffled (the sub wont do abover 150 hz) but did have kind of a super reggae vibe. worked as a practice amp for sure, i'd never gig with it. hey for 10 bucks, ya did good. ;)
