I dint know how to title this :S

A bass on a guitar amp will blow the amp speaker right? (so I been toll)

what about a guitar with a octave pedal will not have the same effect of blowing the speaker?

You can play a bass on a guitar amp, just make sure not to blast the volume/bass. That's how Wolf Van Halen plays, same kind of rig as Eddie. And no, an octave multiplexer or some other sort of octave pedal won't blow your speaker.

Bass through a guitar amp will blow the speakers. Playing quietly will simply reduce the rate at which they get damaged. An octave pedal does not have the same effect as it does not produce nearly as strong fundamental as a bass.

However, a guitar head and a bass cab will work. It will just sound a bit rubbish, and the EQ will be set up for guitar frequencies, again leaving you unable to adjust the lower portion of the tone.
