What is the exact definition of a combo amp?


I've never actually known what makes a combo amp a combo amp.

A combo amp is both the amp and the speakers in a single unit. As opposed to a head or a stack (a stack has a head) where the amp and the speaker cabinets are different units connected by wires when in use.

That help?

Basically it has the head and the speakers in one box.
