Hey UG!
Ro of 'Please Inflate' here again with another question.

Question 1
We have no access to 'POWERFUL' speakers and we own no mixer as of yet.
Let's say we bought ourselves a cheap mixer (75-200$) and plugged 2 stereo speakers into the outputs of the board. Would it work well as a vocal speaker?

Question 2
If i plug a mic to my amplifier, will it fry my amp?

thanks again guys!

Not sure about question one, but no to question 2. Just leave it on clean channel.

ok plugging your mic into your amp won't fry it.

but what i use, i've got a quite good stereo sound send for my computer i just use my mic in port, and plug in the speakers, and my computer works as mic amp that way

i wouldn't use it in a gig anyways :p

Edit: Don't use distortion indeed

No, if you're speakers are not powered, you will some kind of amplifier to boost the volume of the signal.

Plugging a mic into an amp should not fry it. It may or may not sound passable depending on the character of the amp.

I'm not sure about your first question.

As for your second, I've used a mic a couple of times with my amp and nothing bad has happened and I don't see any reason why it would. I guess you just have to be careful with feedback (obviously) and it should be fine.

1. When you mean stereo speakers, you mean like consumer speakers or PA? You can buy active speakers at are around $200 if you don't mind Behringer or Tapco, then plug your microphone directly in and go.

2. No, but it won't make much of a sound. Your amp's for guitars, not microphones as resistance levels are way off.
