righto, just pulled the trigger on an 18 watt head to go in a 2x12 combo shell that i have. 

my plan is to get one g12h speaker and one vintage 30.   my grand plan is (and i assume this is possible) to wire each speaker to its own jack so i can choose to have one or both speakers running.  is that cool?  this would give me access to the original intended speaker but also allow me to access a slightly different tone with the vintage 30 and more sounds again when played together.

if i were to get two 16 ohm speakers and not connect them together at all and just connect each to its own jack then would i leave the impedance selector on 16 when i plug each speaker into the two speak inputs?

So your amp has an impedance selector switch?   From looking at the schem on this website it did not show one.   Regardless, the jacks are wired parallel.  If you plug a 16 ohm load into each jack, you need to select 8 ohms.
Good Luck
