What would be the outcome? How about the other way around?
Not exactly sure what your asking, but............
If you are asking about having a 4 ohm cabinet, and your head is only rated at 8 ohms, then the answer is............you will fry your head.
The other way around is fine. You have an 8 ohm cab, and your head will handle 4 ohms.......no problem.
As the great Fonzy would have said, "Ehhhhh, exactamundo!"
Keep in mind though that if your amp is rated for a 4 ohm load, putting an 8 ohm cabinet on it will reduce the amount of watts your amp will be delivering.
For instance, my power amp puts out 700w into 4 ohms but only 475w into 8 ohms.
Like the other guys said, you definitely shouldn't put a 4 ohm cab on an amp that's only designed to go down to 8 ohms.
another good way to fry your head is to grab a giant pot of boiling bacon grease and dunking the head in.......
...you forgot the fresh garlic.
And while some insist cornmeal makes the best breading, I prefer a cornmeal/flour mix.
Another possibility - maybe stinsok wants to run a 4 ohm and and 8 ohm cabinet in parallel.
You can do that, as long as your amp can handle the load - maybe about 2.67 ohms if I remember??? Also, the 4 ohm cab will be much louder than the 8 ohm cab. If you don't mind the 4 ohm cab being 'dominant' then that's okay...
Of course, you could be asking something completely different. Lift the veil of vagueness, o mighty stinsok, that we might shower you with relevant answers!!
