Last year I replaced my Marshall MG30DFX for a Peavey Valveking Royal 8. The old amp is now gathering dust in the corner of my room and it isn't worth selling as the things are worth nothing.

However, in the quest for my low end from my Peavey, I've been thinking about a bigger speaker (like this guy). Sitting in the corner of my room is an unused 10" speaker.

Would it be possible to run my Peavey through my Marshall Speaker?
If so, would you advise it?

Thanks for your help!

I'd use it as a stage prop. Set it up on an amp stand and knock it over during your last song. Have a cable in it and everything, but just not hooked up to everything. Then people will be like "*gasp* He knocked over a Marshall!"

EDIT: Or you could sell it to someone who thinks that it will be godly because it's a marshall. I have a friend who has an MG50. He thinks it's the greatest amp in the world because of the Marshall logo on it.

You would have to make a longer speaker cable to go from the peavey to the MG. DOnt know if there is a speaker jack on the peavey or just direct wired. You could get a few parts at radio shack to make it so you could disconnect quick. As for how it will sound, well maybe it will be a little better but it is an MG speaker so dont expect much.

Remove speaker, hinge front and use as a storage box.

i like this idea, it could have alot of possibilities as a storage box.

I doubt you would notice much of an improvement, but if you want to try it, replace the wires going to your Peavy's speaker with a mono jack, then you can use it as a head. then just wire a pug onto some short speaker wire, and solder the other end right on to the peavy speakers tabs. Combo/head, best of both worlds.

Better idea than mine.

DO IT!

Oh, and write something like "THE WORLD'S MOST USEFUL MG" on it

I was going to be facetious and suggest that you pour petrol into it and burn whilst doing a ritual dance, but that is a waste

Take the actual amp out and fill in the hole where the speaker was, use it to store beer and whisky for after the gig (Y)

Take it apart and learn how each part of an amp works. That's what I would do, and currently doing to my old guitar pick ups and pots, jacks, etc.

Turns out I can plug a cable into the headphone out socket on my Peavey and run it into my CD in on the Marshall, which by-passes everything and goes to the speaker.

I'm still interested in what SVStee said though!

that'll work, but i think that you'll lose some of your tone that way. You might be better off doing the rewiring to make your peavey a head

Dude! Put the peavy-electronics inside the MG-body.
That would amaze people! An MG will never have sounded so good!
