Can I run two cabs at once with the Fuchs ODS 50?

    Is it ok to run two cabs at once on the ODS 50? it has 8ohm and 4ohm speaker outs, so can I run one 8ohm cab and one 4 ohm cab at the same time? the owner's manual did not make reference to running two cabs at once, and I just want to make sure that is safe. I'm assuming it's similar to my bassman, like a speaker and external speaker out?

    I called Fuchs tech support just the other day about adding another 1X12 to my combo. They said that the easy way is just to use a Y splitter to run to each and make sure the ohms are correct. 2 8ohm cabs to the 4 etc.
    I don't think you can plug into both. Call tech support. They were easy to get a hold of and answered my questions quickly.

    Definitely two cabs from one output (with a Y splitter), that's what I do with mine.
