Re: running two amps at once

sorry to be too vague originally. other than the boomerang and dl4 the 
effects are rather simple. all of the effects run before the boomerang in 
the chain and no effects are added to the boomerang's output. current 
is a fender deluxe strat > morley mono volume pedal > snarling dogs mold 
spore wah/ring modulator > ibanez ts9 deluxe tube screamer > dunlop jimi 
hendrix model crybaby > line 6 dl4 delay modeler (being ran mono right 
 > boomerang+ phrase sampler > '65 reissue Fender super reverb 4x10".
my exact intentions are for every sound that comes out of the boomerang to 
be transmitted by a seperate 2x12" combo and that amp only. my guitar 
be sounding from the 4x10" combo only for a larger lead sound. both amps 
will run simultaneously so no a/b switch should be necessary. hopefully 
makes everything a little clearer. thank you.
