i have a toneport gx (the smalled one) and i was wondering if there was a way i could hook it up to a cab...i know i could always buy louder speakers, but i dont want to buy a new amp, i rather just keep my tone port

also, what about the one with the midi keyboard on it? i was thinking of upgrading to that one for xmas...will that be able to have a cab hooked up to it (it has more inputs/outputs)

Current Set up:
Atomic Reactor 2x12 Cab/power amp with a Digitech rp1000 as a preamp
Schecter c1 plus electric guitar

If you want to hook up your tone port to a cabinet you would need a power amp to power the speakers. Then you use your toneport as a preamp I suppose...could work. I saw a dude that used to do that with his pod 2.0....

Right, toneport/pods don't have their own power stage, they are like preamps, so an amp is needed somewhere in the chain for them to be heard.

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster, Ibanez RG2570MZ, Epiphone SG G-400
Vox AC4TVH head + V112TV cab
Vox Satchurator, Vox Time Machine, Dunlop CryBaby, Boss MT-2, Boss CE-5, Boss TU-2, Boss ME-70
Line-6 POD X3 + FBV-Express, Pandora PX5D
