Stereo pedal. What's difference ext cab /two amps

I have a delay pedal and a reverb pedal and would like to use the stereo outs.
I have a combo with an external cab so both speakers would sound simulateously...(theres only one in on the combo from the guitar)i also have 2 small 5watt tube amps( each has one input each) Which option would work best for achieving the pedals stereo feature..like ping pong delay etc?

For a true stereo sound, you're going to need two amps and at least two speakers. If you run a stereo signal into just one amp, you're going to sum that signal back down to mono. So you could use both of those small amps, or use your combo and one of those small amps, or you could probably figure out a way to use the combo and extension cab on one side and hook up both 5 watt amps on the other, giving you three amps with two signals.

Thanks! That's alot of tone variance ..I often wondered if combos w ext cabs were more for live or studio...guess anything is possible

If your main amp has a line out (sometimes the FX send can be used as such), you can send that to the delay, then to the stereo 5 watt amps....then you have a stereo wet/dry setup.

If you do this the signal coming off of the delay is going to be line level, not instrument level. It's going to hit the front ends of those small amps pretty hard if you use their standard guitar inputs.
