Hey all, i have a quick question and i expect an honest answer.


Is it ok for my Stereo speakers (i have a 5.1 channel Yamaha system) to play my guitar out of it? What i mean is, using the headphone jack on my amp and lining it to my receiver and out my speakers.

Thanks guys, i am just wondering this because i don't want my expensive speakers to be damaged.

I think it might be alright. Speaker systems are designed to have a wide frequency response, so it's not like plugging a bass in a guitar amp. Just don't crank it too loud and be careful.

I run my Vox tonelab through the stereo, and it sounds amazing.

Would it also be alright to use an effects pedal, say the Rp50, doing the same method?


Edit: To nightfire, because it sounds better out of my speakers than my fender frontman 15g.


I need a new amp and this is a quick and cheap solution.

least till i get a job in september.

I run my Toneport through my Surround Sound and it's bitchin'. So just keep the volume low, JUST to be sure!

I tried it out with my old stereo once andyou wont hurt anything by trying it out but it will sound like garbage and you can turn it up as loud as you like electronics engineers are smart enough not to build a unit that could blow itslef up and an unaltered guitar signal is a lot weaker than most rca inputs. I never tried using a pedal though so I don't if that would hurt it or not.

Oh rp 50 is like a multi fx and moddeler right? didnt recognize it at first. if so that might sound pretty good. I have an old gnx3000 and that sounds better through headphones or audio reciever than through my amp.

Yeah, its multi fx, but one of their cheaper models.

It gets here Thursday so i can't experiment what sounds better yet, though.

It's only really worth doing if your FX unit has some amp/cabinet modelling functions - if it doesn't then it's going to sound like crap.
