I'm not familiar with the Spider II 30 watt amp.  Does it have a CD/MP3 input?  If so you could perhaps use this to feed in a signal from your Floor POD

Here is an FAQ that may help:

Q: Can I bypass the preamp section of my amp to avoid stacking two preamps?

A: Yes, There are two ways this can be accomplished.

1) If your amplifier has a CD/MP3 input you can go directly in the this jack from the POD output (This is a common method with the Line 6 Spider Series amplifiers). Be aware you may need to "trick" your amplifier input by using a 1/4" dummy plug in the instrument input to allow signal to pass to the speaker (headphone adaptors often work well for this purpose).

POD Connections, Routing and the 4 Cable Method
