Omg ohms wtf!?
I just bought a 1959HW Plexi and a 1960AHW cab. Ive read so many vehemently contradictory statements online on ohm matching and am trying to get to the bottom of it with my limited knowledge of electronics.
My question is: As long as you mismatch up you are easing the load on the head, right?
head: 4ohm into cab:16ohm
head: 8ohm into cab:16ohm
head: 16ohm into cab:16ohm
head: 4ohm into cab:16ohm, cab:16ohm
head: 8ohm into cab:16ohm, cab:16ohm
I know when you plug a signal into outboard gear (preamp, compressor, etc...) the consensus with most engineers is to flip the outboard ohms (input stage) as high as they will go. same concept?
sorry if im way off but there seems to be so much speculation on something which obviously has 1 correct scientific answer.
