I'm not nearly as newbie in electronics as I will seem in this post, but I will ask in this fashion because I'm real sissy when it comes to my musical equipment.

The connection between my amp and the internal loudspeaker is a simple jack, so in theory it wouldn't be a problem to hook the amp directly into my PA. I'm just wondering, what values do I need to check in the manuals to be sure that nothing horribly electric will happen when turning the power on?
For example, I have a
(The Blue 100W combo)
(PBM 8.250MkII)

So yea, just pretend I'm a complete ignoramus and take it from there!

As long as you obey Ohms law, you should be okay. However, I haven't dealt with equipment in years so don't obey my law about laws.

They use line level inputs. If you plug your amp's speaker out into the mixer, you'll destroy both.

If your amp has a line out, use that, and remmeber to have your amp plugged into a speaker as well.

Just... look at the user manual.

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!
