Will it hurt my guitar amp in any way if I use a bass with it? If it matters, it is a solid state 100 watt Fender amp.

Lmfao, this is the best thread ever, aside from the fact that it involves a girl being harpooned through a tent.

I think I've gained so many gay points reading the past 3 pages of this thread that if I gave another man a blowjob I'd actually lose some.

wow... you guys really know how to tell someone to search before posting...

In brief: your AMP will not suffer... your SPEAKER will!!! The small electrical signal won't fry your guitaramp itself, it's just not powerfull enough. It's not optimal tough...
The speaker is another story... Guitar speakers and bass speakers are a totally different design. Also the cab design is a whole other story. Guitar cabs are open back designs, bass cabs are closed back. Too much bass will make your speaker go over its mechanical limits... In English: most likely it's going to self destruct. Why? You don't hear bass, so you pump the mids/lows on your amp. The speaker can't handle the power and will break...
In the short run, it shouldn't be much of a problem... In the long run, your guitar amp will suffer and might even break down on you.

Thats why they make bassamplifiers...

My neighbour bought his son a Mark Hoppus bass for Christmas, the set-up on it was terrible (the neck had so much bow they should have supplid arrows with it).

I was actually wondering about this the other night...what are the technical differences between a guitar 4x10" cab and a bass 4x10" cab? cause I seem to remember reading something a good while back that it's actually the same other than the way the speaker is supported, as bass speakers need more space to vibrate.... would be interesting to know

Most guitar cabs are closed back :]
It's very hard on tubes and the output transformer to run a bass signal, You would shorten your tube life dramatically.

Guitar: 1x12, 2x12, 4x12
Bass: 2x10, 4x10, 8x10, 1x15, 2x15

Bass cabs have to be ported a certian way or the bass response will die. Bass speakers move back and forth farther but slower.

I should have been clearer on this... I ment the cab section of a guitar combo. Because this is what vaisatch123 was asking about.

Ever seen a speaker move at 1Hz? rather funny

there's a program, NHC Tone Generator, wich you can use to generate those frequencies on your computer. If you hook up a speaker to it, you can see it move... And you can test your hearing range aswell
