I recently bought a lot of guitar gear this year, considerably my first somewhat serious set up, and I'd like to get as much as I can out of it for what I paid. So my question is, is there any other use for a speaker cabinet, like my Raven Classic 4 x 12, other than plugging into an guitar amplifier? Perhaps a way to connect it to other devices like computers or some sort of stereo system? It just seems like such a waste of space and money to get other speakers when I have this massive system already, so might be worth a try to find out.

I have a good understanding of electronics, just not so much with audio equipment such as this.

Thanks in advance,
Pickle

The speakers in your guitar cab are specially designed for the frequencies a guitar covers. They're not gonna sound great when you put drums through... Try it for yourself, it just doesn't sound right

Guitar speakers are pretty much one trick ponies. Not hifi at all, but they colour your sound. An amp would sound terrible driving full range hifi speakers as would a guitar cab playing music.

^ Also, Gui_Lux, your sig. is amazing lol.

Well, a guitar cab sounds good with a Hammond organ but again, only when it's driven by something like a Marshall Plexi. Really, a guitar cab is only useful when hanging off a guitar amp.

Mmm... guitar amps and electric pianos can be pretty sweet. Keen to run one through my eleven.
