Spider 4  hd150 -  can I connect  headphone out of hd150 to mp3/aux in of spider 4 15?

I would love to use my hd150 head with ONLY aux in of spider 4 15 (don't want to lug the 4x12 cabinet to my gig at a tiny venue) .  I know that the head should have a speaker load JUST IN CASE the  headphone out fails (to avoid frying the head)   I'm thinking of getting the Behringer di  boxes to simulate load...

Any issues with this configuration... Well it work?

In theory it should work, but the sound may not be pleasing or noisy.  Does a 15 really give you enough volume for the venue?!

I don't know anything about the Behr DI boxes, but I doubt they present a 'load' to the amp.  I've never heard of the headphone output failing, either.

in a support ticket somewhere on this site... there is a reference to using  Behringer Ultra-G GI100 DI if one

wants to safely operate the head w/o the speaker cab connected. 

The DI boxes apparently create the necessary impedance expected by the head.

the venue is a small room for community theater... the 15 watt is actually too loud for what we do
