Speaker out mod?
 
Can it be done to a peavey vypyr? I have this mesa and no head, just a vypyr ss 100w 2x12. Im really tired of seeing this do nothing but sit in corner :[

it can be done with any amp.



with no plug in the jack, everything works like normal (the signal goes to the amp's internal speakers). plugging in a speaker cable re-routes the signal to whatever is on the other end of the cable, switching off the internal speakers.

just remember, like with any head, it can hurt the amp to use it without a speaker, so always remember to have one plugged in.

SS amps are ok with operating under no load.

tube amps will show their contempt for you by frying the output transformer though.

Exactly. SS amps are a lot more forgiving than tube amps are.

So what do I use as the plug to send the signal to the cab? (be sides the obvious speaker cable) since there is no speaker out port.

use the same jack as in the pic i posted.

or if you are talking about the actual plug/cable, you need a special cable made for connecting speaker cabs. the plug bdy is bigger and the cable is thicker.

i hate how people use 'plug' and 'jack' interchangably/don't know the difference between the two..

But i only have an input jack, so i need to wire that in correct?
