    I have a Hartke B200 combo standing here at home, and I noticed at the back there is an 8 ohm speaker out jack. (The one at the left here: [​IMG])

    Now I was wondering, what options do I have to connect this combo to an external cab to use the combo as a head?

    Are all 8 ohm cabs supported?
    Can I get full power out of any 8 ohm cab I connect with the combo?
    What's the maximum wattage of the cab when I want to use it with this?

    Maximum wattage of the cab is irrelevant.

    It's a 20 watt amp.

    Yeah, at 20w, I'm not sure what more you're going to get out of it. I suppose you might get a lift from plugging it into a 1x15 or a 2x10...more speakers = more volume...but at 20w I'm not sure if it's going to be a lot more. I doubt it.

    If you have a cab available, try it. It will sound great with an efficient cabinet.
    Here's a link describing speaker sensitivity and what it means to you.
