    Have an S16 on the way and would like to know whether to look for an 8 or 16 ohm celestion blue to use with it. :drool

    First off, you're gonna love that thing. I've got one with the 2X12 cabinet. It's got a blue and a G12H30, both 16 ohms (says 15 ohms on the G12H30), which means it's an 8 ohm load. The Head has speaker outs for both 8 and 4 ohms. Not sure about the single 1X12 blue version.

    as Option mentioned, the amp has 8 and 4 Ohm speaker outs, so I guess that means you'd want an 8 Ohm speaker for a 1x12 cab.

    Ted,
    Did you just receive yours recently? Just wondering what serial number they're up to now. Fun amp, eh?

    +1 the S16 with the Blue / G12H30 cab is the way to go. I LOVE the AC15 channel - it is KILLER!

    I agree with the others......the open back 2x12 cab with G12H + Blue sounds fabulous with this amp!

    Altough I really like the matching open back 2x12 cab with my S16, I finally fired it up through my Z-best and that is also a killer combo.
