    it depends. you can hook it up to any speakers as long as you don't go below the minimum impedance (SS), or as long as you match the impedance selected on the back of the amp (tube).

    guitar speakers can sound great but will often get blown at higher volumes. PA speakes can sound fantastic, but youhave to experiment to find ones that can handle the bass.
