    I read that plugging an SVT into a single 8 ohm cab is not the greatest idea. Would it be safe to plug one into two 8 ohm cabs since the two of them together equal 4 ohms?

    Yes, but if it's an older SVT like before the 90's, you should daisy chain both cabs into a single speaker out on the head because they don't have the 4/2 ohms switch.

    Alright so I would just select 4 ohms and plug each cabinet into one of the speaker out jacks? I plan on getting either a newer SVT CL or a VR.
