Ok, so i am bored at home and I realize i can use the school resources.

So I am wondering, if I can make this beastly 4x12 cab and use my cube 30w as a head?

I've seen someone use a Marshall combo as a cab for a Valve head (DaveMC, maybe? I dunno), so it probably will work.
Just don't come to me for wirings and what to do or not do, though.

Yes, it is possible, and it's often done with Fender amps, cos most of them are combos. A combo and a cab are known as a 'piggyback stack'. Don't ask why.

It'll work best if your cube has a special speaker output, which i think it does.

I never knew that school resources included large pieces of wood, tolex, jacks, etc.




Well at least they include a few big tools

Sure you can do it, but a Cube 30 watt isn't really going to make it worth it...go find a new head first.

I was thinking about doing that with my cube but I built a 100 watt power amp and I would have it so I could switch between the Cubes internal speaker and default power amp or the 100 watt to make it a head. A cube would would look damn good as a head IMO.

Well the school resourses are for free so what the heck, might as well spend some time making them :P.

Hmm, they don't have speakers that big, so instead can I put like 200 small speakers (like those you find on compy speakers (small ones )) and split the load so it doesn't blow up?

It don't matter how many itsy-bitsy speakers you got, they still won't have any bass response.

how about you dont be a cheap person and buy some speakers to make a cab that would actually be worth while instead of just wasting your time and cheap speakers on something useless....
#14
Agreed.

You need instrument speakers or PA speakers really because they're way tougher.

Yep, that sure is a hundred bass speakers in a cabinet or something, man.

Well I don't think this guy is actually going to put hundreds of speakers in a cab (I doubt he'll even get around to picking up a hammer to be honest) but it is a cab full of small speakers.
#18
with enough speakers, you will get some bass. but its easier and cheaper to go with bigger speakers.
#20
Now heres a good idea. How about using that power amp you built as an amp for that cube....like this:

guitar-->cube-->power amp-->cabinet

This way, you have the tone of the cube, but the volume and bass response of a poweramp/cab.

You could build the power amp into the cabinet, saving space and making it look prettier.
