so my guitar amp pops a lot when i plug a bass in and i dont know why it does that. With a guitar it doesnt pop and it used to work with my bass too but today it isnt. Anyone know how to fix this? is there something wrong with the bass?

I don't know what's causing you're problem, though if you don't have bass speakers its really bad to be running a bass through it, lower frequencies require more travel that guitar speakers don't have. You should get a bass amp if you like your guitar amp or its speakers or can't afford to replace them when they break or start sounding like soot and poo.

There's your problem. Guitar amps aren't made to handle bass frequencies.

ok idk why yall freaked out over this haha.. The popping sounds meant i needed a new 9v in my bass.. that is all. it works fine through the guitar amp, just doesnt sound that great low end
