    I have a Rumble 200 Series 3 which I love. I also have a Marshall MBC410 cab and I'm wondering if I can use this as an extension cab? The Rumble say's '8ohm min. 100w' on the Ext. Spkr output socket, and the Marshall input is labelled '4x10" 4 Ohms'. Can they be used together without risking any damage of either?

    Advice appreciated.

    Cheers, Steve

  2. Not a good idea to use a 4 ohm cab as an extension. This will give you an overall load of around 2.6 ohms on the amp. I believe that the rumble is a 4 ohm min amp. Running with anything less than a 4 ohm load will overheat it at best and burn it up at worst. If you can disconnect the speakers in the rumble , then you can plug in the 4 ohm ext. cab without any possibility of damage to the amp.

    No.

    You could install a speaker bypass plug in the 200 and run directly to the Marshall to get 4 ohms.

    No, that's a dangerous mismatch. Where the Rumble says "8 ohms min.", that eliminates the 4 ohm cab.

    Many Fender Rumble Club members who have the 200 combo like the sound of the Rumble 115 cab with it's matching speaker, though the cab has a bigger footprint. Others like the 210, or even the discontinued 112, cab for good sound and the matching footprint. All of them being 8 ohm to make for a compatible connection.
