QuoteI just watched that 'convert a cheap combo into a head' video and I'm wondering is it that easy???
QuoteIS THIS THE SAME AS USING IT AS A LINE OUT SAY INTO A MIXER ?
Quote from: Elantric on March 10, 2017, 09:56:05 PMNot at all, The whole point of this mod is to allow the Katana Combo to drive a separate speaker cabThe Katana Head includes a Speaker output jack, to use your own favorite 8 ohm to 16 ohm speaker cab.The Katana Combo amps do not include a Speaker output jack, so this details how to add the missing speaker output jack for Katana Combo amps But If you want to feed a mixer, use the existing "Line Out" jack on the Katana 100-112, Katana 100-212, Katana Head Never connect a Guitar Amp "Speaker Output" directly to a Mixer Input
QuoteWhich is my only issue with this amp. Why in the world didn't Boss add an output jack to the 50 like it does to the 100? Odd that. I'm also mystified about the external foot switch issue. Why isn't there an external switch capability beyond the A/B channel switch? It does say "expression pedal" on that jack. Given everything...is that just a future option? No info on it anywhere.
Quote from: Hardos174 on March 08, 2018, 10:54:28 AMHi,I saw this topic and thought I had some informations to share...In fact when I received my katana 100 I directly opened it to make a visual control (as I make for every one of my amp) and add an output speaker jack.I used neutrik plastic mono jack with switch on each connection (as shown on the first post of this topic) and connect the main speaker output from amp to the lugs which are not switchable (the signal cannot be break) and the katana speaker wires to the switchable lugs so when a jack is connected the katana speaker is disconnected and vice & versa.The interesting thing I learned when I done it is there is already the location for the output speaker jack on the PCB, I think it's the same pcb for katana 112/212 and katana head, I am not sure if there is the midi connection as well but the output speaker jack is here and if I remember correctly the silkscreen on the pcb say « J4 » for it.So all you have to do is buy the good jack socket (with pins and not lugs), drill the chassis at the right place (pretty easy) and solder it...!!!And to finish this post I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the quality of the wood/composite enclosure, it's seriously solid!Good amp by the way...
Quote from: mike349 on September 28, 2018, 05:17:03 AMhi all, i'm trying to get my head around (if possible), how to allow for, using the katana combo, the use of an external 8ohm speaker cab which DOESN'T mute the internal katana 8ohm speaker.
Quote from: admin on October 15, 2018, 02:33:04 PMThat results in two speakers in Parallel = total load impedance below 8 ohms = overheat the Katana thats why the Katana 2x12 cab uses Two 16 ohm Speakers in parallel = 8 total ohms load
