Hey next saturday i'll be purchasing a roland cube 60 amplifier, im hoping it'll easily be loud enough for band practise but im guessing probably not for gigging, so i thought about getting a cabinet. If i were to plug in a 60 watt cabinet/speaker would it be putting out 120 watts of power or will it be more evenly spread?
thanks for any help, i'm a bit of an amp noob.

no- you'll still be pushing out 60 watts- the wattage of the cabinet simply shows you how much the cab can take before the speakers blow.

If you're mic'd up then it's possible to gig with it.

hooking it up to a 412 makes it appear a fair bit louder due to the extra air being moved, so yes it would help

if you have enough for the cube 60 and a cab, you should get a bigger amp instead.

^haha, i meant because he's going to want more watts to gig with, not to get a great big MG monster.

He can always use the Cube+cab until he knows what sorta amp would work for his tone.

The smaller Cubes are really good metal practice amps but you could get something far better for gigging. I wouldn't want to gig with one.
