I have a recaiver that sounds great when I play my guitar through it quietly. However, I am afraid of playing loudly because it would likely destroy my speakers. Could I hook up my reveiver to a guitar cab, by speaker cable? Or would I have to make a custom cab?

Didn't Kerry King use MGs at some point?

I think he just endorses them because he likes sacks of money

You could hook it up to a guitar cab.

But could I use stereo cable? Or would I have to line out? I don't have a cab, so I don't know what the input is.

What makes you think you're going to blow the speakers?

You're not playing any booming bass or screaming treble (the stuff that usually blows speakers)

The guitar fits right down the middle of the frequency range of music, and is really not extreme in either direction.

I'd crank it up a bit and see how it sounds. You should be able to tell if its cracking and it sounds like its gonna blow.

Does your receiver have a phono (record player) input? That would put you closer to a instrument level input, I think... and you wouldn't have to turn up the volume much at all. (in fact, you should turn it down before plugging that in if it has it)

The phono should be higher impedance, more like a guitar amp input. (and a lot louder at lower volumes)

yeah but if its an extremely old speaker, they are known to pop on occasion. I say just run a speaker cable to your guitar cab.

If its not blowing when playing regular music through it, I don't see how plugging a guitar into it will magically blow it up.

I don't think it'll blow your speakers unless you transcend their power capability, or generate spikes like plugging in/unplugging with the volume all the way up.
