so today i bought a 6505+ but no cab.
i have a studio-112.
the back has a effects loop and a external speaker jack. is there any way i can use it for a cab?

Look on the back where the speakers are. If the speakers can be disconnected then yes you can use it, but you have to make sure the speaker can handle the wattage and the impedance matches.

how do you tell if they can be disconnected?? sry.
its 8 ohms and 300watts handling, so im good there.

Well my amp just has 2 speaker jacks where the speakers are plugged in. For me it's as easy as disconnecting/connecting them just as you would your guitar. If there are no speaker jacks, then the speakers are hardwired to the amp and therefore unusable for your head unit.

i ddint see any jacks where i could disconnect it...
could i plug it into the external speaker.

Now I'm totally confused. Either your combo has a jack or it doesn't. If it does, make sure the value for the impedance match the head (amp). The impedance will either be (in most cases) 4, 8, or 16.

If your combo doesn't have a jack, it is easy enough to add one for conveinience. Open the combo up, look at the speaker. On the back of the cone (magnet) there will be some detail about the driver (speaker) and what the value is.

If you are not familiar with basic soldering, then I would seek some in-person assistance.

Can you see the speakers or is it a closed back?
The external speaker jack won't do you any good, that's for plugging more speakers up to your 112.

it doesnt have a jack to "disconnect the speakers"
it has an effects loop, footswitch, and "external speaker" jack.

but how will i be able to connect my head to the speaker and make it work?
its 8 ohms and handles 200 watts(not 300 sry)

Yep....guess I should have said "INPUT JACK"...not one for connecting the combo "head" to a cab.

But still, it wouldn't take much modifying to connect some wire to the driver and then to an input jack and then mount the jack on the combo somewhere.

I may be wrong, but I think you'd have to undo the soldering and disconnect the speaker that way, buy a speaker input tip thing, attach that to the wire from the speaker. You're probably better off just waiting til you get your cab. It'll save you the hastle, and you wouldn't have to take the tip off and re-solder the speaker wire back to your combo.
