Using a second cabinet

Post by JimiJames » Mon Apr 09, 2018 12:40 pm

I am looking for ideas and suggestions.
Since I have the option on the head,
I'd like to use a Full stack, but what do I use if both head & cabs all have a single jack?
A mono 'Y' cable sounds easy enough, but should I make a breakout box using three cliff's ?
So, out from the amp head to the splitter box then out to the cabs....
How to wire? :scratch:

Either way will work. A mono Y-cord, non-shielded of course, everything in parallel. male plug on one end, two males on the other. You could build a a simple box with three female jacks, again, everything wired in parallel.
