peavey 120 century bass head +#800 booster?

i am presently running a PEAVEY 120 SERES BASS HEAD THROUGH 2 2X12,2X10 PEAVEY CABS,THIS SOUNDS GOOD, BUT IS A LITTLE UNDERPOWERED FOR MY SCENE WHICH INCLUDES A GUITARIST WITH A MARSHALL STACK THAT IS STUCK ON "11"
THERE IS A 1/4 IN. JACK ON MY AMP FACE MARKED "BOOSTER" AND I HAVE COME ACROSS A #800, 400 WATT PEAVEY BOOSTER
WILL THESE UNITS BE COMPATIBLE?
IS THIS "BOOSTER" JACK ACTUALLY A "POWER OUT"?(like for a power amp)OR IS IT SOMETHING ELSE?
WILL PLUGGING THIS 400 WATT "BOOSTER THINGY" INTO MY "BOOSTER" JACK CAUSE MY BASS RIG TO ARC, SPARK & GLOW IN THE DARK?
A SECOND OPTION HAS OCCURED TO ME, AND THAT IS TO USE A SECOND 120 HEAD, RUN ONE CAB FROM EACH HEAD, AND USE EACH SIDE OF MY BASS CHORUS PEDAL TO DO SO.
THIS GIVES GREAT REAL STEREO EFFECT, BUT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE TWICE AS LOUD, AM I MISSING SOMETHING?
ALSO, THIS SETUP IS NOT PLEASANT TO HAUL AROUND.
HOW CAN I INCREASE MY SOUND OUTPUT WITHOUT NUKING MY BASS HEAD?
SHORT OF BUYING A WHOLE NEW RIG , THAT IS...I LIKE THE 120 SOUND , JUST WANT A LOT MORE OF IT.
IDEAS?...SUGGESTIONS?...PLEASE HELP!~!

Try Active Bass. It's the "Wanna be as cool as" site like wholenote here, but it's for Bass players. More people who are use to bass gear.

Sorry I couldn't help more.

PS-You didn't have to yell so much. :)
