    Actually... Weber Speakers offer 32 ohm versions, so you could parallel two 32-ohm 12" to get your 16-ohm cab, if you want. Now what are you going to do? :dunno

    If you use 8 ohm speakers, then wire them to two seperate jacks, you can use a series wired wye cable, for 16 ohms, using both speakers, or use the speakers seperatly for stereo, at 8 ohms each, (a seperate cable from each jack, to seperate amps).
    Can also use a paralell wired wye cable, for a 4 ohm load.
    You can make-up a pair of short wye cables quite easily, just remember which is which.

    What's your amp, and what sound characteristics do you want to enhance?
