Hey Im buying a Marshall mb15 from a friend in like a week. The problem is it only has 15 watts. The description for the amp says it has a line out on the amp though. Does this mean I can connect it to a cab or just a PA system?

ok thanks. you wouldnt happen to know of a realllllllyyyy cheap bass cab would you?



a cab on a practice amp, isnt going to make it louder.

it's still 15 watts.

what kind of out is it?


if it's a headphone, it's not going to power a cab.

No it wouldn't

You'd be play a 15w amp still.

but would the extra speakers not help?


Not at all.

If it did, you wouldn't notice the difference. The amp is where the volume is.

it's a line out for recording or monitoring.

it's not a speaker out.


it's a 15w practice amp.

Line out means it's a line level output for connecting it to (powered) monitors or recording gear. It's a very low output. If you had a PA it would work, but I'm assuming that's not the case.

To power another cab you'd have to run it through a seperate power amp, then to the cab. If you're not recording or plugging into a PA, just forget the line out exists.

A line out cannot power a cab. More speakers do not equal more volume.

When I had a Spider III, I used it's Line out/Headphone output for my 2x12 cab until I got my first head.

It cut the volume in half, but sounded slightly better. I wouldn't recommend it though.
