    A 8ohm 1x15 cab and a 4 OHM 2x 10 cab can i use them at the same time or will it be too little of a load there are 2 outputs on the head each says 8 OHMS are they parrallel outs or independant?

    That will give you only 2.67 ohms which is too little for the amp from what I understand. You need at least 4 ohms.

    Plugging each cabinet into the 2 plugs on back is just like daisy-chaining them.

    If you want to run 2 cabs they should both be 8 ohms.
