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: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.
