Thanks for all the responses..I will rewire in series and use the recommended load of 16 ohm.JJSent via the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, an AT&T 5G Evolution capable smartphone

Two 8 ohm speakers in parallel are a 4 ohm load which may be to low for your amp. If you could rewire the cab to put the speakers in series you’d get a 16 ohm load which would be safe.> On Jun 25, 2020, at 3:51 AM, mr1danga via Harp-L <harp-l at xxxxx> wrote:> > Howdy all. Just purchased an amp head and a 2x10 cabinet with 8ohm 50watt Red Fang speakers in parallel. 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
