    Ok, so i know nothing, i wont even pretend i do.
    I have a 'Laney HCM65b Hardcore Max' amp (combo). Its Great in practice with teh band but it really lacks punch at gigs, basically i dont want to but a whole new set up as i only got this amp not so long ago and to be honest i have little money so im looking for a cab to put under it.
    Would this be a good idea or will it ike, blow up or something, as i said i know nothing at all so i dont even know what questions i should ask, what cabs would you recommend im looking around 100/150 watt here, thanks and sorry for being so damn stupid

    You need to check your combo amp's manual to see if it supports an extension speaker. If not, you'll have no way to power the cab you put under it.

    If it does support an extension speaker, check out the watt and ohm levels it supports before you buy an additional cabinet.

  4. Then yeah, get an avatar 210 8 ohm if you want a little more punch
