I have been trying to find an answer for this for awhile.. Can I connect a JCA20H and a BH5H to a JCA24S 2x12 cab and switch between them with a Live Wire ABY1 box???

If you can set both of your amps to 16 ohms, then yes.

EDIT: Looked up all your gear. Plug one head into the "Left" and the other head into the "Right" input with speaker cables, set the switch on your cab to "Stereo", and you'll be good to go.
Spin 'round carousel when your horse isn't screwed in.

As above. Use one stereo input per head. Don't use the ABY, you'll blow it up and probably take the amps with it.

Edit: you can put the ABY between your guitar and the amp's inputs to select them. Don't ever put it between an amp and cab, though.

Each amp needs to see a load otherwise you will fry your output transformer.
That Live wire won't do it.

Look into the realm of attenuators. Maybe someone did an oddball one.
You can do it if you have a stereo cabinet.

Edit:
NM...yeah, you can..s stated above.
didn't know it was a stereo cab.

The Radial Headbone is an ABY switch made specifically for switching two heads between one cab. Mark Tremonti uses one in his live rig.

The reason the rating is so low is because one person didn't fill in any stars in the "overall" space of their review

For the price of that headbone he could just buy another cab. It's a really specialized piece of gear that doesn't make a lot of sense for most people.

although true, if space or ease of transport is an issue, this is obviously smaller and easier to lug around than a second cab. just sayin.
