    I've never heard of an amp that outputs at 8ohms only [at least not in current times]. Most amps output at both 8 and 4ohms and some go down to 2ohms.

    Any amp [wattage decided by buyer] and a 4ohm cab [or 2 8ohm cabs] is the usual standard.

    Until you hear from Kustom saying otherwise, you should only run 8 ohms. The amp itself may be able to go down to 4 ohms but since its in a combo its already driving one 8 ohm driver so an extension cab would have to be 8 ohms as well.

    Expensive smoke machine? Yep! Wait till you hear from Kustom.
