    Is it alright to use a 16 ohm cab and an 8 ohm cab w/ my Behringer head? I know running 2 8 ohm cabs is alright, so I assume that this would be ok, but I just wanted to be sure.

    That would give you a pretty awkward impedance, and your 8ohm cab would be receiving more power.... but I dont think you'd mess up your speakers or your head.

    Yes, it would be o.k.

    But REMEMBER....your 8 ohm cab will be getting 2/3 (or twice the power and possibly twice as loud depending on efficiency) the total power and the 16 ohm cab 1/3.

    As long as the cabs will handle the power you will be fine.

    As long as you like the tone.
