    Hey there. Thanks for checking out my post. I have a question about the legendary Peavey F800B and the 2ohm load capabilities.

    I understand that the head is 2ohm stable (like a lot of the 70s Peavey stuff), but I was wondering if in order to feed the amp a 2ohm cab (yes I have a 2ohm wired cab), do both 4ohm outputs on the head have to be used at the same time to equal 2ohms? Or can a single output be used, wired to a 2ohm cab and run the head at 2ohms?

    I guess an easier way to ask this question is.... if anyone has used this amp at a 2ohm load... how are you wiring it?

    Thanks in advance!

    The jacks are wired in parallel so you just use one jack.

    Be sure your speaker can really (safely) handle 800 watts RMS.
