I have recently (about 3 hours ago) purchased a 120 watt Bugera 6262 head, without a cab to go with it. Normally, this would be moronic, but I read an older forum and realized that it was possible to do some wiring and adapt the speakers in my current amp ( a 100 watt 2x12 combo) to serve my purposes. HOWEVER: I do have a question concerning the exact method of wiring.

My original plan was to use unshielded speaker cable (same stuff you use to hook up the speakers on your TV) and solder a 1/4 inch plug (male) to one end. Will this work, or will I have to solder a jack instead and then buy an actual speaker cable?

ive never heard of anyone useing reg speaker wire to run a head to cab before...doesnt seem like a good idea to me.

your best bet is to just use a reg 1/4 " guitar cable or a head to cab speaker cable, since those ground better and reduce static, hum and all that

does the 2x12 amp have speaker in/outs on the back off it? what kind of 2x12 amp is it?
