I have a guitar amp that recommends the following for connecting to an external cabinet:
Only use extension cabinets with an impedance of 8 Ohms or more (e.g. 16 Ohms). NEVER use a lower impedance (e.g. 4 Ohms) or damage could result. WARNING: If you use an extension cabinet with an impedance of more than 8 Ohms your Pathfinder 15/15R’s output power will be reduced – it only produces its full output of 15 Watts when presented with an 8 Ohm speaker load.
I have been offered an extension cabinet described as having "Impedance - Switchable 4/16 Ohms mono or 2 x 8 Ohms stereo." The cabinet has two inputs labelled 'input' and 'link'.
Please could someone tell me:
1) Can the speakers in the cabinet be setup such that the cabinet will be 8 ohms running off the one input (my amp)?
2) If the above is not possible and the cabinet is 16 ohms, will I lose a lot of power by running the 8 ohm amp into it?
