    Basic electronics question about an amp:

    Can I run the line out of one combo amp into the input of another without doing any damage? My buddy has a show coming up and only his Peavey TNT-115 to play out of. I was thinking we could run the line out into the input on my Kustom KBA100. Would this work?

    You could try runing your amp in the effects loop of the TNT effects out (Pre power amp post preamp) into your input or staight into your effects loop therefore bypassing your pre amp and not adding any extra eq to the tnt.

    you can run the direct out to the input, its the same as running out to the PA

    I agree with the Tayste feller....pre-out to power-in is a better idea. If you just go line out into input, you're going to also be using the EQ from the second amp, which will cause a difference in your sound. Pre-out to power-in will bypass the second amps EQ.

    OMG can't believe some one agrees with me thanks.

    The TNT is quite a powerful amp if you need more power than that churns out you should really be pluging into a P.A your running the risk of blowing it up if your pushing it at full volume and it's still not enough. Just be careful.
     
  6. well i want a peavey tnt so i researched it well if u run out a another cab it will be 100 watts each and for small clubs i think thats pretty good power.

    sometimes you get some real cool mixed sounds though try it every way and see which fits you the best and sounds good. you could also dish out like 30 bucks and get an a/b/y box to hook up the two
