Go Even Louder: Connect Spark LIVE to Spark CAB

Go Even Louder: Connect Spark LIVE to Spark CAB

June 13, 2024By Joshua Fernandez 0 Comment

It’s a tale as old as time – the never-ending quest to keep ears ringing well after your band practice or show. Well, Positive Grid’s newest addition to their award-winning line of Spark guitar amps, Spark LIVE, is paving the way for musicians to break out of their living rooms and onto the stage. So, for all of you Spark LIVE owners out there who think the 150-Watt multi-channel amp and PA system isn’t loud enough (I mean, really?), may we offer this suggestion: maybe take a gander at Spark CAB?

What is Spark CAB?

Spark CAB

Spark CAB is a 140-Watt FRFR speaker cabinet designed to boost the volume of anything with a dedicated output – whether it be a guitar amp, modelers, or an instrument, Spark CAB delivers high-quality sound without any sound degradation to its source. To make things simple: it’s a way to basically amp your amp.

Connecting Spark LIVE to Spark CAB

There are 2 ways to connect Spark LIVE to Spark CAB, and both can be done in a matter of seconds.


Use the Stereo Combo Jacks

If you’re looking for all this volume, then we’re sure you have a bunch of ¼” cables lying around. Simply plug both cables into the L and R Output jacks behind Spark LIVE and plug them directly into the L and R jacks under Input 1 of your Spark CAB. A good tip is to use different colored cables so you don’t mix up the left and right channels. Tape works too!

Spark LIVE

Make sure the switch on Spark CAB is to the left to enable Channel 1.

Use the Headphone Jack
Spark LIVE

Spark CAB comes equipped with a 3.5mm stereo cable that you can plug into the headphone jack of your Spark LIVE and then plug directly into the Spark Input jack behind Spark CAB. The only caveat to this method is that this will effectively mute your Spark LIVE (meaning sound will only come out of Spark CAB).

Make sure the switch below is to the right to enable this input.

Great Places to Connect Spark LIVE to Spark CAB

Trying to find a great place to show off your new dB? Any small to mid-range venue is a great place to start. Spark CAB definitely has the power to cut through live drums, so you won’t have to worry about getting drowned out. One of our guys even tried it with his punk band a few months back, and it worked out great.

Most venues, however, will usually end up mic’ing or lining in your Spark CAB anyhow to push your sound through the house PA. So, if you’re playing with a live drummer, we find that having Spark CAB behind you as your own personal monitor is pretty dang awesome. If you’re using vocals with Spark LIVE, though, we recommend you don’t stand directly in front of it.

Spark LIVE and Spark CAB are now available for sale on the official Positive Grid store. Plug in now!
