are you running your ohm's at 16 or 8?

changing to LOWER impedance [ohms] can give you some extra oomf. i like the sound of the 16 ohms, its warm. but, that puts the most load on. try going with an 8 ohm cab [remember to put your selector switch on 8] and try that.

4 ohms is even hotter. ohms are like logs in a river [river being amps current] and ohms being the logs].

so, if you want to slow down the current of a raging river, you would want to put MORE logs on than FEWER logs. so, 16 0hms [logs] holds back more water [current/sound/signal] than 8 would. 4 even less. you want maximum water flowing? us LESS logs. MORE sound? less ohms.

so, one thing to remember. if your amp is running at 16 ohms, an 8ohm or 4 ohm cab will be ok. you would NOT want to run a 16 ohm cab with an amp set to or rated at 4 or 8 ohms. if you have a raging river and you put WAY, WAY to many logs to damn it up/slow it down you are going to have damage and bad things happen behind those logs. water [current] is going to start doing massive damage, flowing over its banks, destroying bridges, wiping out trailer parks, drowning animals and kids, etc... because the force is so great when theres to much blocking it. think of your amp [the river] and the logs [ohms] the same way. 4 ohms is LESS than 16 ohms. 4 ohms is lees than 8 ohms. your amp is running wide open on 4ohms and it runs into a speaker cab set on 8 or worse, 16 ohms, you burn the town down ending all life as we know it. transformers, wring, tubes, all toast!!

i am ALWAYS big believer in matching impedance/ohms [impedance= to impede something, slowing it or stopping it] with guitar rigs. running 16 ohms with your amp, then run a 16 ohm cab. 8 ohm amp selected, use 8 ohm cab. BUT, if you cant do that, ALWAYS make sure the ohms are LESS on the speaker cab than what the amp is set at. if you put a 16 ohm cab with an amp set on 4 or 8 ohms, you get that example of the river i gave, bad things happen like smoke and lightning and fire and bad vibes and empty wallett, missed gigs, etc... .

just thought i would throw that in because i ALWAYS see folks asking about impedance [ohms] and this is the best example, the current [water] the ohms [logs, bricks, rocks, etc...]. the more logs you put across a flowing river, the MORE it slows it down. water/current going OUT is the same. think of a water pipe: you have 3 sizes of pipe to use to get the water OUT, size 16, size 8 and size 4 with 16 being the smallest opening and 4 being the largest. 4 ohms will pass more current than 16 ohms will.

this rule [ohms rule] is the same for ALL audio applications, guitar/bass amps and live sound rig. never ever put more ohms in front of your current/signal from your amp. make them the same or make sure your speaker

~~ cabinet has LESS ohms than what the amp is set on.~~

then your golden with no empty wallet, lots of gigs, and best of all, plenty of chicks!!
