What output is your amp?

this will determine whether you can use your speaker or not.

get some 16-18 awg copper wire and hook the speaker up to a 1/4" mono jack. easy as pie when there's only one speaker.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

oh and its a head so 16 ohms would work... or are you talking about wattage?

if you've got any old lamps around that don't work, have at it with some wire cutters


failing that, parts express has wire and jacks for cheap. if you don't wanna order online you'd have to find an audio store around you somewhere.

edit: what head are you going to run with it ?

Radio shack should have the jacks for the cable. The cable can be as cheap and simple as lamp cord but actual speaker cable is easy enough to get ahold of. Go to a stereo shop and buy 3 feet of heavy gauge speaker wire.
