To have a speaker out instead of the speaker being hardwired to the amp.

It has two fairly long wires running from the amp to the speaker. Could I just solder these wires to an output jack (mounted in the amp chassis), and have that run to the speaker (or a cab)?
I know what to do with the speaker from there (rigging it up to plug into a speaker out), but I was just wondering if my idea was flawed or what.
Because I would prefer not to hire a tech for this if I can just do it myself.

Thanks!

yes.

easy-peasy
one of those two wires should already be connected to ground
connect that one to the sleeve of the jack.

Alright, thanks for the help!
Just to get a visual on this, which wire should I solder to what part of the jack? Here's a pic.



Many thanks

Edit: Didn't see the new posts.
Yeah, I have impedance matched up. I just want to be certain on the wiring of the output jack. The rigging of the speaker is no problem, though.

The wire which goes to the ground should go to the sleeve, the tab without the little cutouts in the side. The signal wire goes to the tip, the tab with cutouts in the side.

Alright, that clears everything up for me.

Thanks!

Hey, just another quick question.
There is a black wire, and a green wire connected to the speaker. Which one is the ground?
I just want to make sure.

I've gotten most of the drilling done, though.

The black most likely goes to ground and black to tip. That's the way all OTs I have seen do it.

Check though...either use a continuity tester or visually trace the wires.

Alright, again, that's what I thought. I just like to make sure.

I'm quite certain you didn't type what you meant to say.
