ok i just purchased a mesa/boogie dual rectifier, and im wondering if theres any problem with using it with a bass cab my friend has lent me. it has 8 ohm and 16 ohm jacks in the back, so it will match with the recto, but are there any other issues ?
thanks

dont do it, its gonna sound so bad, and the speakers are for lower frequencies, u can prolly blow the speakers.

Nope, I use a bass amp for my guitar a lot (for a "right" amp for stereo effects) and its nice, there's a tighter low end, and a nice, round treble response.

Lots of guitarists use amp equipment made for bass guitar because they tend to have better bass response and a more full, thick kind of sound.

I think as long as the ohm ratings match up it'll be fine. Just be careful with your volumes for the next little while.

No, there should be no problem with putting your head into a bass cab. Especially with a new Mesa like you've got.

match up the ohms, and you should be fine. It's playing a bass through a guitar amp that can mess up your speakers.
