    When headphones are plugged into the back, should my cab still getting output or do I have to unplug the cab?

    I thought plugging in the headphones would automatically disable the cab...

    You need to unplug your speaker (not headphones). There are no switching jacks available in the SpeakOn format.

    So to be clear, if I want to just run with headphones and no cabinet, I'll need to unplug the cabinet.

    No damage to the amp will occur with just the headphone drawing power?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks guys.

    I just got the amp, and it's replacing a Neo-Pak 3.5, I open the box and my first reaction was "Where's the rest of it?"

    It's teeny.

    The NeoPak was the beginning of the migration to compact, lightweight technology. The Shuttle is just our way of taking it to the next level. No worries, everything is really in there ;)
