    That's the mate. My Mesa 4x12 cab is loaded with 4x8ohm V30s wired in Series/Parallel making it an 8ohm cab. No plans to rewire it. That's why I came up with the idea of an 8ohm Greenback + 8ohm Mesa 4x12 joined to a Series box to make it 16ohms so I can plug it to 16ohm speaker out of dsl40c. What you think?

    Ahhh yes I am a dumb ass at this, but what I have been doing is (an ohms impedance mismatch) I plug my internal 16 ohm and an 8 ohm cab together, I know it’s wrong but I have got away with it for better than 2 years,this is at both gig volume, and tv volume. Let the stones fly my brother’s:band:

    I am sorry that I didn’t have a positive answer for you, but I have no experience with the series box that you mentioned :confused:

    Wow really? I'll try to look at that impedance mismatch thing. Maybe it can give some better ideas. Thanks a lot for your feedback!

    Found this gears that may help me with my plans. Maybe some guys got some experience with these.
    1. Z-Matcher-100 (Impedance Matcher)
    2. Palmer Cab M Cabinet Merger (Series/Parallel Box)
    3. Cab-Link Speaker Cab Combiner (Series/Parallel Box)

    What I remain clueless is if the Mesa 4x12 will have degraded tones due to the internal Greenbacks sharing circuit with it.

    How loud can the 20 get? Is the 70/80 really that bad of a speaker? I was thinking that since it runs on EL34s in the power section, it would be interesting to put KT77s in there, but not certain if that would be wise for a 20 watter, maybe with a more powerful speaker who knows. And on paper it weighs about 14 pounds less than the 40CR. Seems like a really nice home and small gig amp.

    I don’t think you will get degraded tone, but I am not the expert here, maybe some of the more experienced guys will chime in. I do know that 2 8 ohms cabs, or internal will net you 4 ohms , not 16 ohms

    The 70/80 is not that bad once broken in, ymmv, it’s what came stock in my 40c’s

    I use it mainly as a home recording and practice amp, but I’m sure it can get very loud. Based on what other people have written, it’s loud enough for rehearsals and smaller gigs.

    The DSL20CR doesn’t have the same bottom end as the DSL15C due to running EL34s. In a 1:1 comparison with identical settings, it’s mostly just a different feel on palm mutes. Takes some getting used to. Both are great amps. The 70/80 is a very nice, smooth speaker. The G12E-60 is a little less defined on single notes, but I like it for that very reason and the fact that it’s darker and thick sounding. It has a lot of character, in my opinion.

    I've got a Greenback in my DSL40C and I pair it up with my 1960a cab with G12T-75s and it sounds amazing (both 16 ohm going into the 8ohm outputs of the DSL). The Greenback is slightly more efficient so it's the main star, but the 4x12 fills out the bass a bit. Love it. Full sounding. My only concern with the V30s are they are extremely efficient and 4 of them will likely overwhelm the Greenback. I had a V30 in the DSL40C and when doing the same thing with the 4x12, you couldn't even hear the cab. All you heard was the single V30.
