Connecting a cabinet to a combo style amp

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if you connect a cabinet to a combo amp if you get the same tone as if the combo was converted into a head. Saw the amp's enclosure to the size of a head. Let's say a bugera 6262 2x12 combo connecting to a 4x12. is it the same tone you'd get as with a bugera 6262 head and a 4x12?

well, there is more to it than that...closed back versus open back cabinet, and speaker efficiency, among other things, will certainly have an effect on how it will sound

Your answer assumes a sensible question. Alas, no. He wants to know if the same amp in combo version sounds different to the head version when plugged into the same cabinet.

Frankly that's a terrible idea. If you want a head buy one. If you want to run your combo with an external cab do that. But don't butcher your amp.

The tubes in a combo might be stiffer or braced better which could account for a difference between it and a head only. BUT if the units are identical, the speaker won't be able to reproduce any difference beyond the expected tolerance discrepancies.
