    I have a TH 30 Head
    I'm wondering if I could use a 16 ohm 2-12 cab plugged into the 16 ohm tap....
    and a 8 ohm 2-12 cab plugged into one of the 8 ohm taps at the same time??

    I could rewire the 8 ohm cab to make it 16 ohms...but didn't know if it was
    necessary..

    Thanks,
    Terry

    No, that would be an improper load.

    On amps that also have a 4 ohm jack there's a way to run a 16 and an 8 safely, but most Oranges don't have 4 ohm jacks.
    -------------------
    You can't rewire a 212 8 ohm cab to be 16 ohms -- you'd have to replace the speakers. (If it has two 16 ohm speakers in parallel you could disconnect one speaker and run it as a 112.)
     
    Mystic38, pedecamp and thetragichero like this.

    thank you RLW59

    And yes, the 8 ohm cab...actually a combo amp.. Music Man 130 Watt...has two "16" ohm...Speakers...

    Actually they say 15 ohm on each of them...they are Vintage G-12 T 75
    Celestions..

    I went ahead and unhooked one of the speakers in the second cab....works fine.
    thanks again,
    Terry
