so this morning bought my first guitar amp head, a randall rh150g3, i'm saving for a cab, i guess it would be for christmas.

however, i want to try it, is it ok to connect a normal instrument cable to the line out plugged to my computer speakers?? or do i need an speaker cable??

No, but if you've got a combo you could plug into that if it has the right speakers.

Yes and No...

That by itself won't hurt anything...

The part that is bad is NOT connecting the amp to a speaker. That is bad..

The amp MUST be connected to a speaker, otherwise it can fry it.

Basically, the amp is cooking, but the power has nowhere to go.

^But the computer speakers are not going to take the load properly, it still may fry.
