    Hey, I'm currently using two different types of speakers as my temp monitors. One is a non-powered PA speaker and the other is my Ampeg 4x10 bass cab while going through a Berhinger Xenyx 1202. I'm using my bass head for now as my amp but I can only get one channel into the input so I can only get mono output or the left side out of both of my speakers. First, I would like to kno what I can use instead of my bass head in order to get a stereo output, some sort of power amplifier I believe and also if running audio through my bass head and cab is bad for them. I am eventually going to pick up some real studio monitors but I still want to be able to hook up the two speakers I have now.

    If you're planning on spending $$ for a two channel power amp, consider using those funds for a pair of new or used active nearfield monitors. They will serve your recording needs better than a pair of mismatched gigging speakers.

    Agreed, if your hell bent on getting an amp don't spend too much on it. Look for used Adcom amps on Craigslist. Almost any amp will do of course, but Adcoms hold their value very well and are good bang for $$.
