  • speaker ohms question

    I have a Marshall MG100dfx. It has 4ohms out with one speaker now. I like the amp but I am used to 2 x 12's.

    I have two sets of speakers 8 ohms and 16 ohms. Can I use any of those or do I need to get 4 ohm speakers.

    Just don't want to harm my amp.

    If your amp is designed to run into a 4 ohm load, you could use your two 8 ohm speakers, wired in parallel, and you'll have a 4 ohm 2x12 cab that should work perfectly with your amp.

      You could also run the 8ohm cab, or the 16 ohm cab, or both without hurting the amp. but 2x8ohms is ideal as you'd have exactly 4ohms. As long as you dont go below 4ohms with your speakers, say by using 2x4ohm cabinets (would be 2ohms), you'll be OK
