    Anyone do this? My smallish rig is an SVT-II with a 4 ohm 2X10 cab. Thinking of adding a 15 cab, but the one I'm looking at is 8 ohms. That SVT head works with 2 or 4 ohms, and has 2 speaker input jacks. Wondering if the combination of a 4 and 8 ohm cab will cause issues at moderate classic rock volumes (I have PA support).
     
  2. It'd give you 2.67 ohms, so you would probably be fine running it on either tap, tube amps handle lower impedances better than higher ones, well, the higher ones can do more damage, but i think generally they can handle a 100% mismatch fine, however, i may be wrong
