  2. just run a SPEAKER cord from one of the jacks on the back of the amp to one of the two bottom mono jacks on the 8x10...

    or if your amp has a speakon jack then use a speakon to one of the two speakons on the back of the 8x10....

    Just plug in 1. It'll be fairly obvious if the entire cab is working, because if not, then the top or bottom half of the cab will be inactive.

    Hey fenderaholic, here is the pdf owners manual for the cab. Fuzzfarmer's answer is right, look at page 3. Just plug one of the speaker outputs on the head into either of the bottom two 1/4" inputs on the cab. This is the mono mode & all the speakers will be powered.

    The B2r is not a stereo amp so you don't need to use both of the speaker outputs to get max power out of it. "Dual mode" doesn't relate to that particular amp.

    Here is the B2 manual as well

    Hope this helps.
