    I have an H&K Duotone that has 4 different speaker outs. 1 is labeled 8 ohm out, one 16 ohm out, and then the other two say "1x 4 ohm or 2x8 ohm"

    So I was wondering if I can run the duotone combos single 16 ohm speaker using it's output jack, while simultaneously using another cord plugged into the 8 ohm output that would be running a 2x12 cab that has a resitance of 8 ohms.

    Just wondering if you can have simultaneous outputs of different ohm ratings from the same amp using the differently rated speaker output jacks at the same time.

    Then wondering about the 1x4ohm or 2x8ohm outputs. Does that mean if you use a single output then the speaker load plugged into that output must be 4 ohms, but if you use both of the outputs then each output must be hooked up to an 8ohm speaker load?

    Sorry if I didn't explain this perfectly, I find speaker outs and ohms a bit confusing and have little to no experience with this stuff.
