To do this, you'd have to run a speaker cable from the speaker jack on the amp to the input of the cabinet. You also have to make sure that the ohm ratings on both the head and the cab match.

how do you know the OHM rating?
it will say next to the inputs on your cab for sure, and if it doesnt say on the speaker of your combo (or somewhere on the amp) it iwll be in the manual. the amp will say "minimum 8ohm load" or something. that means anything 8 ohm or above is ok

the line out jacks on a lot of smaller amps like that will run at a line level... for a mixer. im not too sure how to do this in this case, i always just run mine into a power amp and then to a speaker.
