Hey All, I'm interesting in putting my BL into my Peavey Classic 30. But the amp doesn't have a 1/4 cable (guitar cable size) coming from the speaker. So my question is how would I do this? Is it easy? Etc.
What does the rest of the back of the amp look like?

Doesn't the Classic 30 run its main combo speaker @ 16 ohms? You'd be best running the amp into the Brake Lite @ 8 ohms--much less stressful on the amp that way. (The BL, BL-SA, and AirBrake generally make the amp "see" 8 ohms, I'm pretty sure.)
I believe that if you use the extension jack on the C30, it switches the output to 8 ohms (?). I'm not totally sure ('cause I don't have one right now) but you might be able to rig it up using the extension jack, which would run it at 8 ohms plus solve the whole problem of the jack.

It is doable, but you will need to know how to solder. I recommend you have a tech do it for you as most folks who think they know how to solder actually can't do a very good job of it.
Here are the steps you'll need to accomplish:
1. Cut the spade lugs off the wires connected to the speaker. 2. Solder a short extension on to the wires coming out of the chassis, putting shrink sleeving over the soldered connections. 3. Solder a 1/4" inline jack on the other end of that short extension. 4. Make up a short speaker cable that has a 1/4" plug on one end, and spade lugs on the other end. 5. Mount the brake lite in your cabinet. 6. Plug the tail of the brake lite into the speaker jack you soldered on to the existing wires. 7. Plug the 1/4" plug into the brake lite and push the spade lugs onto the speaker terminals. 8. Turn on the amp and test at very low volume - if you get no sound, shut it off and ask for help.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
