Headphones output of guitar amp into Mixer input?

I have a Fender Champion 20 guitar amp and a Pyle Professional PAD43MXUBT mixer. This mixer doesn't have a HiZ guitar button on either of the channels. I haven't plugged the guitar into the channel and increased the gain to see if it gets enough signal. If it doesn't, can I take the headphones out from the amp and go into the mixer's line input on channel 1 or 2?

Can an active speaker be used as passive if amp dies?

This hasn't happened, however, I was wondering: Suppose I have a powered speaker, like Yamaha, QSC, etc. The amp in the speaker dies, or stops working for whatever reason. If that were to happen, could the speaker be powered via an external amp, and be used like a normal passive speaker? 

$50 amp sI'm plugin as good as $1500 rack unit?

Am I deaf or? This was excellent demonstration imho. I can’t believe how similar the Fractal Axe Effect rack unit, sounds to the amp sI'm plugs. I grabbed the TH3 amp sI'm based on this demo, and it’s $50 special sale price. This is the second plugin I have from overloud, a company I discovered via a free api eq they were giving away.

Tube Guitar Amp for Home Practice and Recording


1.Im looking into buying a tube amp for home practice and maybe some recording in my apartment.
Many new amps comes with speaker emulated output for recording purpose.
So when using this output will the amp speaker itself be silenced? (So that i can crank up the volume, for recording purpose, without waking the neighbours)

Using a power amp/mixer as just a power amp for a mixing console?

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I couldn't find a better one. I was hoping someone could clarify some questions I have about setting up a PA system for my home studio. I recently acquired a Peavey XM6 amplifier/mixer and we've been running it through an 80 watt Behringer wedge. We have a set of Yamaha PA speakers that are on their way this week.

Stage PA Amp 101 question

I have a stereo amplifier. It's a really powerful Ashly that is nice sounding. (Not really important to this topic). Being that it has two channels, can I run a mono mix to front of house (two speakers only @ 8 ohms) on one side of the amp. .And run stage monitors on the other channel ? I have a sneaky suspicion its ok as long as my ohm load is equal on both channels. Or, am I wrong.
