you mean like outsid of the amp? If so, it wouldn't work I don't think cuz you would have to change your tube setup too

Does your combo speaker plug into the back panel or is it hardwired? If it plugs in, then you should be able to just use an attenuator regularly with no issues. Otherwise, you'll probably have to make some modifications to the speaker wire. I don't believe there's such a thing as an attenuator specific to combos but I could be wrong.

Which amp are you using?

Its gonna be weird cuz if you put the wattage down, you wont get any overdrive cuz your tubes are gonna be too much . . . right? I thought the point of an attenuator was to get od at different volumes

wat

There is a specific combo attenuator made my Dr. Z and I'm sure there are others. The only difference between using one with a head and cab is the possibility that there's a bit more work involved if the wire connecting the speaker and amp doesn't have a 1/4" jack on it.

The point of an attenuator is to achieve tube overdrive at low volumes. It is placed between your speakers and your power amp section.

You achieve overdrive from your power amp by cranking your master volume/power amp volume on the amplifier, and then lowering the volume on the attenuator.
