installing external speaker jack on roland microcube amp
Hi everyone, Has anyone installed a external speaker jack on a roland microcube amplfier?  
All the owners say they love the small practice amp until they turn the volume control past 4 then everything breaks up. I guess the amps 5" speaker cannot handle the power.  
I was thinking if I install and external speaker jack which disables the amps 5"speaker and connect to the proper impedance 8" or 10" celestion speaker I could turn the volume further up than 4.  
Does this sound like a good fix for the problem?  
The reason I picked the microcube is I need a small practice amp for my bedroom. This amp has roland cosm amp modeling and effects for a small price and it produces great sound for its size.  
Thanks to everone who responds.
