    I have a Trace Elliot V Type head and have it connected to an 8 ohm 4x10 cab. I tried to put a 1x15 8 ohm cab as well an d when plugging it, with amp on standby, got a horrible cross between a shriek and buzz. I unplugged it immediately, and amp worked fine with the 4x10 alone. The amp says minimum 4 ohm cabs, so wonder what happened? Needless to say, not going to attempt it anytime soon.
     
  2. This happened with the amp on standby?
     
  3. What happens with just the 1x15?

    Works fine now, think I plugged the speaker cable from my combo into the 4x10, so had two amps going into one cab
     
  7. Don’t do that again! :)

    When I realized what I did, I felt like a complete jack wagon. This is why my wife says that I'm not allowed near a chainsaw

  10. A friend forget to plug his 100 watt Marshall head into his cab once and turned it up to 10 while strumming and saying what the hell is wrong with this thing? There was something wrong with it after that, haha! I didn't realize or I would have told him.
