Most guys with Marshalls use 16 ohm cabs. Seems weird a Marshall style 18 watter is 4/8 out.
Email Suhr. If I recall correctly, I think there's a custom 16 ohm option.
I know but it seems weird to have it as an option. There's one for sale locally but I have 3 16 ohm cabs and zero 8 ohm.
Yeah, from what I heard it was a sound issue. Power scaling, the design, the transformer available only had the 4 & 8 taps. Maybe you might like it despite the ohm difference. I can only speak for myself, but I heard it thru a few different cabs, 4x12s that may have been 16ohm, and it sounds like nothing else. Weird? Sure. )
Wire your 16 ohm cab to 4 ohms - put them all in parellel instead of series
You could also try the weber z-matcher that will match up pretty much any impedance: https://taweber.powweb.com/store/zmatch.htm
haven't tried it but it seems like a very useful piece of equipment
