    Yes, you can!

    You just won't get the full power of the amp.

    Go to the top and read the FAQ about amps and how they work...good stuff that will serve you well for years.

    No stupid questions, only stupid replies! ;)

    But yes, definitely.

    And don't feel too bad. I was just figuring out this whole "ohms" thing last summer, and I've been playing 7 years! :p Surprised my amps and cabs lasted like they did. I just plugged them in and hoped it all worked out!

    But just think of it as simple math- 2 16ohm cabs equal an 8ohm amp load; 2 8ohm amps equal a 4ohm amp load; 2 4ohm cabs equal a 2ohm amp load. Hell, I even copied and pasted that to Notebook one time once I first figured that out.
