  • is iis it safe to run only two power tubes in vc3112

    I was wondering if it is safe. I really want to chase down a bad tube or just lower output a bit. I understand you need to change ohms but would 8 ohms go to 16 or 4ohms? The crate is cathod bias i believe if that makes a dofference.

    You would go from 8 to 4, but if it is safe with your exact amp, I don't know.

            I'm pretty sure those are cathode biased so no.
