    I currently have a 1965A cab and have an opportunity to pickup a 1965B cab to make a full stack. Question is, how do you hook these guys up, as there's only a single jack on each cabinet. Most of my amps only have single 4, 8, & 16 ohm output jacks. I believe these are wired series/parallel @ 8ohms per cabinet.
    Here's the prospect:

    Here's the 1965A cab with some of my smaller heads:

    You could make a parallel box that would give you a 4 ohm load ,without modding the cabinets .....

    I use a Y cable to create a 4 ohm load on my 8 ohm 1965A and 8 ohm 1966B.

    I made a series Y cable which will give you 16 ohms from 2x 8 ohm cabs.
