Hooking up an orange amp and cab

Post by violetone » Tue Feb 06, 2018 1:46 am

Hey, i'm getting my cab delivered tomorrow and as i'd like to know it ahead of time to make sure to plug it in right, if the impedance on my 2x12 Orange ppc (closed back) is 16 Ohms, then no matter which input do i choose on the cab, i have to plug it into the 16 Ohms input on my Orange TH30 head, right?

And make sure to use a speaker cable.
Looks the same as a guitar cable, but the guitsr cable won't take the current- and you would end up damaging your amp.

I’ve always used lamp cord with 1/4” plugs soldered on. Works just as well as any brand name speaker cable.
