Can I use Guitar amp/speakers with the bass? Concrete amp is Marshall JMS102 - 100watt 2x12 combo.
I read somewhere that the speakers will be damaged if played loud, but will they be damaged when played at "bedroom" level?

Thank you in advance
yours Bojan

It wont sound like a bass amp but it will work fine.

Confirmed. If you go up gradually, you SHOULD hear the speakers farting out before you actually blow them, but I wouldn't hit any big POPS or attempt any thunderous big low notes suddenly.

Big issue is space. I simply don't have any space for a bass cabinet/combo. The only possibility would be to get rid of Marshall and replace it with the bass combo
And I am emotionally attached to that Marshall :(

Your Marshall will have no problem with a bass at lower volumes... Don't crank the F... thing and you will be fine. Plug into the Low input if yours has one is all. Younger, I used my bros JCM 800 stack and had the most amazing sound with it. Hence the reason why I got the YBA3 ....

I have a GK Microbass 200w mini head and ampeg 2x10 200w cab that takes up very little space.
If you're interested I can bring it to the jam at Gerry's and let you try it. If you're interested we can discuss a price. If not, that's cool.
Here's what they look like.. (btw I'd sell both for much less than these cost new)

if it is not too big of a hassle bring it for a try out, thank you
No hassle at all, consider it done. I plan on being there between 1:30 and 2.
