Is this a better idea than using my combo amp to drive a cabinet? I need my amp louder for a gig im playing soon but i still want a good tone.

adding a speaker wont make it any louder. The volume is dertmenined by the head and power amp. It would be better to run it into two sperate amps to increase volume

Will your gig have a PA system? You could just have them mic the amp.

Some combo amps have an output to drive a cabinet, some don't. If your's does, then you'll need to find a matching cabinet for it.

Using a combo amp as a cabinet doesn't work very well because you're feeding the signal from one amp into the amp head of the combo and you can overload it.

Buy a better amp, borrow a better amp, or investigate your venue's sound setup.

It is determined by the wattage of head but whats louder, 10 people yelling or 40? 1 speaker on your computer or 4? There are more sound waves
