Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Can I run my '74 Marshall and '67 Park, 50 watt heads, set for 8 ohms into
    a Marshall 4x12 16 0hm cab?
    Same question,
    run a 50 watt head set for 4 ohms into a 2x12, 8 ohm cab?
    Any problems?

    I would like to run the amp head set at 8 ohm into a 16 ohm cab.
    Or, run the amp set at 4 ohm into an 8 ohm cab.
    Is that a problem?
    I don't want to re-wire the cab to match.
    I think I read Germino amps, Classic 45's, amps set for 8 ohm into a 16 ohm cab, trying to get the amp to break-up sooner. Does that make sense?

    Sorry, I misread your post, I thought you were trying to run a 4 ohm head into a 16 ohm cab and wanted to know if it was safe. The simple solution then was to rewire the cab to four ohms. Ignore my earlier post.

    But I think you are heading the wrong direction trying to get the amp to breakup sooner by using a mismatched load. Just my opinion, but on those vintage amps I would match the load, and if I wanted to get an earlier breakup I'd look elsewhere for that.
