you probably want to add quarter inch jacks to the back of the combo amp. That will look alot better than wires hanging out of your amp. You can buy the quarter inch jacks at most electronics parts websites. partsexpress.com is one that i use. You would than run the cable to you cabinet. You just need to solder the two wires to the jack

i think this is what your looking for.

i dont want to solder the wires to the speaker connectors...i want the option of connecting only the speaker in my combo amp for practicing

alright. what you do is split the wire so one way is going to the speaker and another to the cabinet. You could put a switch in the circut if you want to turn off the speaker when connected to the cab. theres many ways to wire this to get the results you want

you also need to consider the Ohms the speakers are in your amp and the cabinet, they need to match in order for the cabinet to properly send audio to the cabinet. The speaker in your cabinet will probably say how many ohms it is and you need to compare that to the ohms the cabinet is. If they don't match you have to rewire your cabinet to match the ohm output of the amp. I would defiantly get the jacks instead of wiring a cable to the combo amp, it is a better way to get the same results and looks nicer. How many watts is your amp, and is it tube or ss. You need to make sure the combo is powerful enough to power a cabinet. What size speakers does the cabinet have?
