Yes, but eventually you'll wreck the speaker.

Most bassists just plug straight into the PA, try plugging into the Direct in of your computer or the AUX of your stereo.

Like Mr Garrison said, remember there are NO stupid questions....just stupid people

Bass through a guitar amp isn't advisable, the speakers can't usually handle the frequencies. Some people reckon you can get away with it at low volumes, but there's no guarantees and I wouldn't do it myself.

if you have a high rated, closed back 4x12 cab then it will be fine as long as the volume isnt too excessive, i know a few people who play bass through marshall JCM900 stacks with no problems.

That's only cause we don't wanna haul our massive rigs around. Bass stuff is always heavier. But it usually sounds better when you DI through a head and use your cab(s) as monitors.

You can use and head, bass or guitar for bass. It's just the speakers. You would really be better off getting a bass cab if you're gonna play at high volumes. Heads can be anything as long as you have enough headroom. In the 60's and 70's alot of bassists usually just bought the same head as their guitarists and bought cabs loaded with bass speakers.
