Okay, I have a Roland Cube 30x guitar amp, and I am wondering if it is possible to safely play a bass through it. I know very little about amp technology, so this is probably a really stupid question. If it's not possible, what's the absolute cheapest bass amp I can find?

A guitar amp can't handle the frequency's a bass guitar puts out, but a bass amp can handle guitar's frequency's

So no, you cant play bass through a guitar amp, but you can play guitar through a bass amp.

Fixed. The amp will be fine...the speaker will probably die eventually though.

regardless of speaker the amp will still sound like poop, the eq controls are centered around a guitar's frequency range

OP wasn't asking about how it would sound so much as if it would be safe, which no, it wouldn't be, because the speaker would die from it not being able to handle bass frequencies.

I use a guitar EQ pedal for my bass, I like it better than the bass version.
