    Hello from york, pa. one of my twins, Jett has 2 full 1960 stacks. can i hook these up to 1 - 100 watt head? what is the proper way to do that? or should i have 2 heads, 1 for each stack and then a Y cable from the guitar going into each amp head? Thank you in advance for the replies.

    All cabinets must be 16 ohms impedance with the amplifier output impedance set to 4 ohms.
    Use two Y-cable speaker cables unless you have a head with four output jacks in which case four speaker cables could be used.

    Run a head to both stacks, then plug the guitar cable into a stereo chorus pedal. Out of the pedal DRY to one amp, then out of the pedal WET to the other. Put on a pair of ear plugs and turn both amps to 7

    Hold on

    Welcome to the Forum! That's a lot of Marshall Goodness with 2 full stacks. I hear that's how they removed paint from houses back in the 60's
