    Default This won't hurt anything right?!

    I want to turn my Vox AD30VT into an extension cab to run when it's not on. That means plugging another amp in to a rear jack that I can wire in. Now the current giong into the speaker won't cause any problems to the amp or any components? Because they will share the same speaker terminals. Or will I have to also install a switch for when I use it as a cab?

    Yes it will.............. hurt my feelings that is.


    In terms of using the amp as a cab, as long as you wire out the unit and the ohms match, it wouldn't cause a problem.

    You need some means of disconnecting the built-amp from the speaker when you're using it as a cabinet. A closed-circuit 1/4" jack that disconnects the amp's signal when a plug is inserted is one means. A switch you have to flip is another. Or mount a jack for the amp and another for the speaker, adn patch them together with a speaker cable when you're using it as a combo.

    But DO NOT parallel the two amplifiers - one amp at a time.

    Yeah, you need a jack that will break the connection to the internal amp when you plug something into it. Pretty easy to accomplish actually.
