    Specifically regarding the 10/20 combo. Does anyone know if it's ok to use attenuators with these amps? I've emailed the company but haven't heard back yet.

    Thanks.

    You'll need to call to talk to Fred.

    IMHO, yes an attenuator would work, I've used a Hot Plate a little just to knock it down 4 db or so. I didn't call to ask about that but Fred did tell me it was ok to use a variac just as low as you wanted though.

    I use an Airbrake with my FTR37 without any problems. Shouldn't be a worry, but you may want to call Fred quickly to make sure.

    Cheers,

    I'd be using an Airbrake too.

    I used a Muzzle with my 10/20. Worked fine.

    I'd like to try an airbrake on my 10/20. How is this effected by ohms? In other words, the speaker in my combo is 16ohm, as is the ext cab 1x12, so when I run both of them, I run the 8ohm outs. Does this matter?? Can I only run one output, so only the 16ohm speaker in the combo?

    Don't know about the airbrake but the hotplate has two speaker outs wired in parallel,so you run two 16Ohm loads on an 8ohm hotplate from one of the 8 ohm outs on your amp.(i think that's right)
