    Got an Aiken 18watt Invader 1x12 combo with a 16ohm speaker. Also have an Aiken 2x12 cab (I beleive 2 16ohms wired as an 8ohm cab).

    Question can I run both the internal speaker and the cab safely, and if so what ohm setting should I use 4, 8, or 16 on the amp.

    Thanks.

    5.33 ohms. I'd use the 4 ohm tap.

    Decided to open up the 2x12 and make sure what the rating was. It actually has two 8 ohms wired in series which would make it a 16ohm cab right?

    So would the single 16ohm speaker and the 16ohm cab equate to an 8 ohm ouput setting on the amp?
