This makes everything a lot clearer. All you need to do is to split 
the signal before the Boomerang and send one leg to the 4x10" and the 
other leg to the Boomerang and thence to the 2x12".  This will give 
you the sound of the guitar, with all the effects, coming from the 
4x10" and the output of the Boomerang (also with all the effects as 
they are recorded into loops on the 'rang) coming from the 2x12".

You can split the signal using simple, cheap, passive "Y" adapters. 
You can buy these pretty much anywhere. The most flexible choice will 
be to use an adapter with one male plug and two female jacks, plus 
two 1/4" TS cables. Plug the male end into the left output of the DL4 
and then use the two cables to attach the Y-adapter (Female #1) -> 
Boomerang and the  Y-adapter (Female #2) to the 4x10".
