I dont have enough money for a head and a cab right now, so im going to purchase a head first probably a Double Rec, or a Bugera head. So i was wondering if i can run a head through my behringer 50 watt amp?

I don't think the speaker would handle all the wattage of the head but I don't know..
#3
theoretically you should be able to plug the head to the behringer amp via the cd in (mic, aux, whatever...) input
#4
NO. The head needs a specific resistance for it's output. You're prolly gonna fry your head by doing that.
#5
You would have to connect it to the speaker in the amp, and then if the wattage of the speaker is greater then 100watts and is rated at the same ohm as the amp, then you will be fine.

put a cable from the fx loop out on the head to the input on the combo

Depending on the house sound, you may be able to run the head straight into the PA, and use the monitors for your ears. I dont know if this has been done, but I imagine it can, depending on Ohms and watts ratings. Check with a sound dude.

please stop giving advice that will cause one to destroy their head.

Not unless the combo has some kind of dedicated "speaker in" input, which I personally haven't seen on any combo so far. Don't try any other input.

no.


you would need more watts and to only use the speaker in that combo.



like that. but even if you matched the ohms. no way the new head you seem to be looking at,
wouldnt blow the 50watt speaker.

Really? Are you sure it's a speaker "in" and not "out"? What model is it anyway, I'm curious?

Dont do it man, just get you a cheap 2X12. Ive seen cabs on ebay as low as 100 bucks, 4X12's for that matter. Do a Car Wash fundrasier and get a cab before you ruin a perfectly good head.

its a behringer v-tone gm110. i dont know if they make them anymore.


Oh, those. I don't think you can use them like that. Make an additional effort and get a proper cab.

Why don't you just sell the Behringer and get a cheap cab to hold you over?
