whats the difference between monitor speakers and an amp??? especially when you use it as line out speaker for your multi effects???
#2
monitor speakers are the speakers on the stage that you hear your stuff coming out of for personal monitoring. an amp is what you plug your guitar into and what connects to the speakers to make sound. monitor speakers shouldn't be plugged directly into amps, that's not what they're for

I'm not sure I understand the confusion. This is like asking what's the difference between a dog and a bicycle.

An amp makes the signal louder...

A monitor speaker is one that you use to listen to yourself...

Lol. You draw the connection.

guitar===>zoom.g9.2tt===>monitor speakers and PC(if i want to record)

i want to ask whether an amp would create a better sound???

An amp by itself would probably have better sound overall, but you would lose the versitility of the mfx. The Zoom by it self would sound better through the monitors than through most amps though.

In this context, it makes more sense.

Amp modellers generally have all the parts of a guitar traditional amplifier modelled - the pre / power amp, and speakers. Many go as far as to model the mic that's used to get the sound, as well as its positioning. These units, IMO, sound far better thru monitors than thru a guitar amp. That's kind of analogous to stringing several guitar amps in series with each other, which really makes no sense in the 'big picture' of your rig. This will be the ideal setup.

However.... You can also use your modeller with your guitar amp if you wish. However, you'll probably have to make a few changes to your presets. The ideal setup is to bypass your amps preamp section completely, and jack straight into the power amp. This can be done on many amps via either a dedicated power amp input, or by connecting the putput of the Zoom directly to your amp's Effects Return. And ideally, you have to turn off the speaker and mic modelling on the Zoom (not sure if that's an option on that unit, but it should be). That way, you're using the Zoom as a digital preamp and effects unit, and using your amp's power amp and speakers for your main tone.

If you intend on using the Zoom for band practice, this is probably your best choice unless you have access to a good PA. For live use, you can go either way. You can either use the Zoom by itself plugged right into the main PA, or with your amp as I described.
