It is so that you can daisy chain the cabs. You can hook an amp output into one speakon, then hook up another cab through the second one.

How do you attach a head to a cabinet?

Plug one end of a speaker cable into the output jack of your amp head. If the outputs of your amp head have different impedance, choose the one that matches your speaker cabinet. For instance, if your cabinet is rated at 8 ohms, plug the cable into the eight-ohm output of your amp head.

Can I plug a head into a combo amp?

Can You Use an Amp Head With a Combo Amp? In short, yes. Combo amps have a speaker cabinet built-in, but many manufactures leave the connection visible on the back panel of the amp. This allows you to disconnect the speaker from the built-in amplifier and connect your own if you wish.

Is 8 ohms louder than 16 ohms?

A 16 ohm speaker can handle more output, it can go louder. Nope. A 8 ohm amp at 50 watts and a 16 ohm amp at 50 watts will both be about the same volume level, if both are using matched speakers, that’s determined more by the output wattage and efficiency of the speakers.

  5. Jam for a while to get a feel for the tone.

Can I run a 4 ohm head into an 8 ohm cab?

You can not go from an 8 ohm cab to a 4 ohm cab it will fry the OPtransformer. Tube amps must match ohms or you will run the risk of ruining it. Remember you can only mis match ohms with ss not tubes, and you can not go lower than the ohms of the amp.

Can you use an amp head without a cabinet?

No. Even if your head has a line/headphone out, you still need a dummy load. A dummy load provides the necessary load for the output without a speaker cabinet to make the sound. If you try to use your headphones, the wattage won’t find the right load and the amp will be under constant stress because it is overworked.

Can you play with just an amp head?

Heads are the amplifiers, the actual part of the signal chain that increases the power of a signal. The amp itself doesn’t make sound. In fact, if you’re using a tube amp head without the speaker converting the energy output into sound, it is dangerous to plug in to just the head and play.
