    Default Ohm's Question...

    I got My UL plugged into two D4x12's. Im running the cabs @ 16ohms and just realized that I also have My Head @ 16 ohms. This was by mistake. I usally run the Head @ 8 ohms and the cabs @ 16 ohms.

    Upon switching the Head back to normal I noticed that It didnt sound as tight or as good @ 8ohms. I was wondering if I run everything @ 16ohms, will this cause any problems? Thanks

    Default Ohms

    Here is a good diagram

    If using a single speaker, impedence should = amplifier out.

    There's a lot of factors that cause this, the biggest being the fact you're using all of the OT's windings when running @ 16 ohms. Look around on the net, there's a lot of info/opinions floating around on this very subject.

    interesting. I found my 50ST was set to 16 ohms, when I run into an 8 ohn attenuator and cab.

    when I put it back to 8ohns it sounded better to me.

    Maybe you need 8 ohms for the perfect tone
