I have just purchased a new Peavey 6505+ head and a 2x12 Vader cab. I was wondering how I should go about connecting them. I am somewhat confused and don't want to damage my new gear.

I know that I should use speaker cable to connect them. I don't understand why the amp head has 2 speaker output jacks or why the cabinet has two places to plug in. Do I need 2 speaker cables? How do I plug in my cable(s)?

Also, I am not sure what ohm to set my amp head at. The 6505+ has a variable selector switch for 4, 8, or 16 ohms. My cabinet says that it is an 8ohm parallel. What ohm should I run my amp head at?

Thanks.

Well, if it says 8 ohms on the Vader then switch the 6505 to 8 ohms and use one speaker cable to connect the two.
