(i dont remember the numbers clearly enough but thats how it worked, and maybe you can set something like that up).
This is a good idea, but...

You'd barely hear the bass through one of those...bass is something for which a good amp is almost more important than a good bass. A $5000 bass through a $50 amp will sound cheap. The other way round, great big bassy sound!
