Guitar head In control room, cab in live room

Guitar head In control room, cab in live room

Hey guys, I'm sure this has been covered before but I wanted to dabble into myself and see what I can gather.

What I want to achieve is to have a guitar players head in the control room with me so I can tweak settings, and have it drive his cabinet out in the live room. How is this possible and is there a way to utilize the snake that runs between the two rooms rather than running another cable (probably not a good idea with amp out thru mic Xlr but...). Any suggestions?

I ran 4 speaker-cable runs between the back of my control room and my iso/drum room. I can have 4 heads/cabs running - works great.

Good call! However, I want to eliminate the need to run another cable if I can. As I think about it, thats probably not a possibility because of the load it has to carry.

Exactly.. I had seen enough people do it, that it was an obvious 'thing to do' when I built my little rooms here (and my favorite amp is painfully loud, and I don't like to be in the same room).

Unfortunately - it's something you probably had to do when you ran your snakes.. so it may be a pain to pull speaker lines, unless you left yourself some conduit.
