Speaker output on OR50

Post by OranjeGeus » Sun May 21, 2017 4:14 am

Hey everyone, new here so hope this isn't silly question. I have a OR50 amp head with celestion v30's in a 4 speaker cab. Was wondering which output option is the appropriate on the amp head: The 1 x 16ohm, 2 x 16ohm or the 1 x 8 ohm....Im thinking the 2 x 16ohm but I not that bright when it comes to this stuff as I dont know the specifics. If anyone can help I'd be very appreciative. Thanks in advance.

It depends on the ohmage of the cabinet. Typically, a 4 speaker cab is 16 ohms so you MUST use the 16 ohm output.

The OR50 has 3 speaker outputs: one 16ohm and two 8ohm. Use the 16ohm output for a 16ohm cab or either one of the 8ohm outputs for an 8 ohm cab (or two daisy chained 16 ohm cabs). Never use both 8ohm output unless you hook up two 16 ohm cabs! The labeling is a bit confusing if you don't know what it means. The first thing you must do is to figure out which load your cab has. Good luck! :)

Thanks for the info. My cab has a 16ohm label on the back, so I guess that answers my question. appreciate it!
