    :welcome: to the forum.
    From what I can find, the VS212 is 2 x 8 ohm speakers wired for single 4 ohm input (parallel) or stereo with 2 x 8 ohm input.
    I'm not sure about the 8 ohm out on the DSL1H 50th.
    I have a DSL1H, and it's 16 ohm out only.
    If you rewired the VS212 to series wiring it would be 16 ohm and match the DSL1H, so that's a possible solution.

    If the amp is ok with 8 ohm, you could use one of the stereo jacks, but that's just 1 speaker.

    Easy (no rewiring) solution is a Palmer Cab Merger.
    Plug into both stereo jacks @ 8 ohm, and use the series jack to amp @ 16 ohm.

    Right. So plug amp out into right input jack and use just that speaker only.
    Or, get that gizmo pictured above.
    No other way to do it without rewiring the cab,
