    hello fellas. Just trying to get this right. ;) I've got a 4ohm speaker that I'd like to use with my Micro VR, although I'm confused as to what needs to be plugged in to obtain the 4ohms.

    Here is the back of the amp. I will focus on the cab [DEL]inputs[/DEL] outputs.

    What I'm wondering is, whether or not I need to put a plug in the 8 ohm [DEL]input [/DEL] output (top output) and then hook my 4ohm cab up to the 4ohm plug. (bottom)
    OR.
    Do i just plug my cab into the 4 ohm [DEL]input[/DEL] output (bottom output) and (go at it).... ?:hyper:

    (PS. this is the best flick I could find of the Micro VR amp. MY AMP shows above the 2 cab outputs 150w@ 8ohms & 200w@ 4ohms.)

    A 4 ohm speaker.


    The two jacks are parallel. Use either. The 4 ohms refers to the minimum total load. And they're output jacks, not input. Read this:

    LOL, GOT IT.

    Just cause on my 72 SVT I use a 2 ohm custom cab and I have to plug in a patch cable to an ext speaker output in order to get the SVT to run at 2ohm. Just though I might of had to do the same for the MICRO VR to get it to run 4 ohm.

    Thanks Bill.
