hey, i have a marshall valvestate 8080 combo, and im gonna be playing shows soon, and a lot of them have cabinets to use. unfortunately, i can't take advantage of these cabinets since my combo doesn't have an external speaker jack. does anybody know how i could install one? thanks

why do you need an external cabinet?

surely if they have spare cabs to use then they will be able to mic up your amp?

Just unsolder the two wires from the speaker, drill a hole for a speaker jack in the case, put the jack in place and tighten it down and then solder the Wires to the jack.

Hot to Hot, and Ground to Ground.

I would assume he want his 2-12" to work as well.


Then he'd have to wire it to use a Neutrik Jack.
Ive got the schematic for it on my other computer, Give me a sec and i'll post it.

EDIT:
Nevermind I did have it on this comp.

seems fair enough, so i just disconnect the red and black wires from the combo speaker and hook them up to the jack?

If your just going for a standard jack then yes,
If your going for the neutrik jack follow the diagram above.

It shows how to hook them up to a neutrik jack.
To hook them up to a standard 1/4 jack all you do is connect the hot wire to the hot lug, and the ground wire to the ground lug.

^alright, thanks, this looks pretty easy to do, should this jack work: http://www.amazon.com/Neutrik-NYS212-Mono-Jack-Switched/dp/B0008IV5EE/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1247846476&sr=8-6 or should i get a "non-switched" jack

on second thought, i'm not sure about something. do i need to get more wires, because it looks like there are wires that go out from the jack into the combo speaker. and is there a difference between doing it on a regular jack and a neutrik jack? sorry, i really don't know much about this particular subject

THe regular jack is just a jack.
The neutrik jack acts as a SPST switch, which means, if you dont have anything plugged into it, it'll run on the combo speaker, but if you have a cabinet plugged in it'll power that.
As for the wires, im not sure can you get a pic?

^what i mean is, on the diagram, it says that there are wires that go out of the jack into the combo speaker,do i need to buy extra wires for that?

Yes, you'll need extra wire.
If your using that diagram you can just unsolder the wires from the speaker, solder them to the jack the get new wires and solder them from the jack to the speaker itself.
