I was looking at the Blackheart Killer Ant because I want the tube sound without the noise complaints in my dorm. I don't really have the money to buy the accompanying cab at this point in time, so I was thinking of using my Fender Frontman 65r. Yeah I know its terrible, thats why I want the Killer Ant.

Will this even work?
Would it sound good?
Would I be better off buying the Blackheart Killer Cab BH110 30W cab?

a lot of people are asking how to turn combos into cabs lately. it's easy if the speaker ohm rating of the combo match the head you want to use with it. do you happen to know what the ohm of the speakers in the frontman are ? if you look on the back of the speakers it should say somewhere.

Won't work unless you un-wire the speaker and wire it up to have a jack.

Considering the Ohm's match too.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Needless to say, I lol'ed.

It doesn't say it on the amp, but I looked up the specs and it said the frontman is 65w into 8 ohms.

The musicians friend site says the Killer Ant does: Speaker outputs: 16 ohms (1), 8 ohms (1), 4 ohms (1)

So I guess they both do 8 ohms?

yup, it'll work. all you have to do is disconnect the speaker(s) from the combo and then solder up some speaker wire to a 1/4" mono jack. buy yourself a speaker cable and then connect the head to the jack you just wired up.

Quick question on this...2 8 OHM speakers wired in mono = 16 OHMS of resistance?

Depends how you wire it.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

You should be thinking in terms of power. 2 8 ohms well give out just as much power as 1 4 ohm

If wired in parallel 2 8s will be 4 ohms. In series 16 ohms. Its a tube amp with an OT so either way will work wont give any power advantages like you get with SS amps. But its pretty easy to do. I have a little SS bass amp I built a tube power amp for. It already has a speaker jack so no big deal to swap it from amp to amp.

Well my head has impedance selection of 4/8/and 16 so I'm just curious what to set it on if I were to wire my combo as a cab. Another question I had is do you actually have to disconnect the speakers or could I just leave them connected and use separate leads to wire them to a jack to use as a cab?

Would you happen to have a diagram for it, or know where to get one on the web?
