is it possible for me to convert a Roland Solid state Cube 15 to a Cube 30. i mean all i really have to do is get the speaker changed to a higher wattage, right?

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

All that would do is put 15 watts into a bigger speaker. The power comes from the amp.. the speaker just has to be able to handle it. Sorry buddy, you want a cube 30, you have to buy one.

Ya, I would sell your 15 and get a 30. You would most likely just mess up you 15 trying to mod it to a 30.

I can't even think of a way to do that off the top of my head that wouldn't be less cost effective (and less... aggravating?) than just buying a new Cube 30. And buying a Cube 30 to upgrade your Cube 15 is pretty pointless.

Why do you think you need higher wattage? Are you gigging with this amp? 15 watts is already very loud for bedroom playing.

My little 3-4watt amp can be heard outside of my house even with my windows closed.


Shouldn't be so hard on the guy though, other posters.

provided those things have power amp chips, all you have to do is use a more powerful chip.

buuut...the support components will most likely differ alot, so you'd still have to build a new power amp. honestly it's not that big a job for someone a bit experienced. the power amps in a SS amp are made up of only a handful of components.

in short, it's entirely possible and maybe even practical to do this (if you have experience). but if you are a noob with electronics or are not going to use it for gigging, you dont need 30W and thus shouldnt try this.

So 15W is enough for Bedroom playing. but if the time comes comes that i want to be on a talent show in school then it would under perform?

I'm definitely all for micing amps instead of just playing loud

I'm just going on the assumption that every highschool sound system sucks


The PA at my high school is amazing. They have a course that teaches how to do live sound.
I'm in it.
But, I do hear lots of bad info. The teacher was flicking the phantom power switch on and off for no reason. He said it gives extra powers to the mics
I quickly intervened.

TS, listen to Jim. He's smart. And geniusest.
