when amps say that u can plug into extension speakers, does that mean i can just buy a cab and plug it into that, or is it more complicated?

uh... i kinda don't get what ur saying... but lemme guess.

your cab needs to be more wattage than ur amp's output. if u have a 40watt amp, u'd want more than 80watts. 50 would be kinda iffy.

nah, i mean like, a 60 watt cube isnt big enough do do a large gig, if i put a line out into the cab, would that make it powerfull enough to do large gigs?

the output is the same if it goes through an "extension cab" out.

if u go line out, its... is it enough to use on cabs?
isn't line out really small? u should put through a PA if its a line out.

but don't quote me on that...

It makes it a bit louder, if you plugged it into am 8x12 stack, it would be around 2x as loud. every doubling of the speakers adds about +3dB. It also spreads the sound better, because it moves more air.

A line out is not for a cab, it's for going into the board. It does not have enough power to drive a cab.

Just since its on topic, if plugging an extension cab doesn't make the sound louder, then whats the point?


As Rein said, it will increase the volume some. What it really does is give a "fuller" sound, and with the right choice of speakers, can really improve it. I run a Tone Tubby 2x10 in parallel with the stock speaker in my Vox AC30CC1. Not for volume, but for tone. It sounds awesome.

It's not complicated. Just make sure the cab can handle the power, and that the ohms match up.
