Truthfully all they are in my opinion are stage dressing. Back in the cockrock days of hair, you had to have at least 3 full stacks on stage in order to even get laid after a gig... Of course, I had 3 full Soldano snakeskin-covered stacks, a large rack of effects with a midi pedal, so my setup was pretty impressive.... except what everyone didn't know was that the stacks on stage didn't work. the lights on the stacks lit up with a 9 volt battery. All my sound came from the little Boogie amp I had mic'ed offstage. I had killer sound and a great tone...and I didn't have to break my back lugging hundreds of pounds of loaded amps around after a gig.

So no, a stack isn't going to make a damn bit of difference against a small combo amp when you got monitors and a good PA.
So. If you throw a cat out of a car window, is it considered "kitty litter"?
