Since the two 8ohm speakers are parallel wired your cab have a 4ohm 
impedance. Thus it certainly crash you amp if you connect this cab like 


You have to rewire the speakers in serie to get 16ohm so this will match 
your amp.

Best regards.

My amp is 15 or 30 watts and has an 8 ohm and a 16 ohm jack and wondering if I can plug my cab into either one without damaging anything.   Also,  if there are advantages to plugging into either one.  i.e. more headroom,  more breakup,  more punch  etc?Thanks 😎Double J in CO
