Nope, you need an amp between the G3 and the cab. Even a cheap stereo receiver will work.
#4
No you need a poweramp...
This question is coming up too much

Powered monitors are an option since they have a poweramp built in but not technically a cab.

im going to have about £100-£150 to make this happen. ill be getting a zoom g3 and i need something to amplify the sound like speakers or something since my amp will make it sounds terrible

deja vu

If you buy some Digitech or Line 6 MFX, they have XLR outs that can go straight to the house PA. With the Zoom you'd need a DI Box to do that.

If you already have a cab, then you just need something to get the power up; Electroharmonix makes pedal sized amps for this purpose. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/22Caliber or http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/44Magnum/

If not, then here's an affordable powered speaker:http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/kustom-kpc15mp-15-powered-monitor-speaker

Great thing about this is you can use it as a stage monitor later on after you get a good amp someday.

Untrue. The Zoom is no different than the Digitech or Line 6 wrt needing a DI box.

Jesus H.... I swear this is the fourth time this same question has been asked in like 2 weeks. Need to add this to the stickies... actually this probably IS covered by the stickies.

I've heard those can be expensive to keep up... They go through a lot of lightbulbs when used heavily.

Sorry, folks. That's right. I didn't notice the "G3"; I thought we were talking about other Zooms. The Zoom G3 does have XLR out.

Also, it's true that you might not need a DI box with MFXs without XLR outputs to go to the house PA, but it depends. If you're playing a large enough venue with an XLR snake to the mixing board, then it'd be tricky to get to the board without a DI box. If you used a long TR cable you'll probably have noise issues. That's why they use XLR--to cut down on noise with a long cable run.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Are you jamming with acoustic drummers? If not, then why not get this?

90% of the time I play on these:
RP-355

VOX DA5 (.5, 1, or 5 watt w/wall wart or batteries)

It's even loud enough to be heard over drums, but the volume rarely goes over 2.
