Well I think it might work, but then it'll sound crappy.

These Speakers are made for every frequencies. Speakers especially for Guitars don't have the ones which produce the high frequencies. So your Distortion's going to sound crap.

That's also the reason why those modelling preamps have cab-simulation, so you can go with them directly through your PA.

Hope you could understand what i'm trying to explain I'm german so it's kinda hard to explain technical things in english.

I understand...I know it would sound crap just wanted to know if it would work so i don't have to pay for a cab straight away.

Well i onced tried that when i was younger... Plugged some HiFi Speakers in my guitar amp... and it sounded like a chainsaw... so i started to use one of those cab simulation effect (included in my korg ax100g) and it was okay.

But you should kill the sound a JCM900 makes by using ****ty or even non-guitar-speakers.

but try it, you'll see

and if you don't have enough money for speakers, i can recommend harley benton cabs warmly to you. Especially those with V30 speakers... Cheap + rock! Nearly no difference to Marshall Speakers (tried them at Thomann)
