I am trying to connect my Fender hot rod deluxe tube amp to a speaker simulator. My speaker simulator is the Iron Cab which has a "link out", and the manual description says:
Attention! When using IRon Cab with a guitar amp, be sure that the guitar cabinet/load emulation is connected to the LINK jack. Otherwise IRon Cab and the amp will be damaged.
I know I can go from speaker out to cab sim and then from LINK back to speaker, but I am wondering if I do the following connections without using the link, but the speaker is connected to my amp, am I damaging my amp?
