I have a ca15 acoustic amplifier. It has an external speaker jack that says 4 Or more ohms on it. This would mean I could connect a 8 ohm cab to my combo amp or would it only be usable with a 4 cab. Oh and does ibanez make good cabinents cause I'm debating wether to buy a ibanez or a Marshall my cab. I don't want to spend over 300

ibanez amps/cabs, with the exception of the all tubes and the Valbee, suck.

get a marshall 1960, or one of the 2x12s.

and yes, 4 ohms + means you could use it with 4, 8 or 16 ohm cabs i believe.

The only other cab in my budget range is a crate and the Marshall mg. Oh and what kind of speaker cable would I use.

This is all sounding a bit like the wrong advice. It's an acoustic amp. You should get a full range speaker for an acoustic amp. If you are playing an electric through it then you should be looking at an electric guitar amp, not an electric amp speaker on an acoustic amp. Sounds like throwing good money after a bad idea.

I will get an amp head after I get the cab because I don't has enough money to buy both. For now the acoustic Amos fine cause I have distortion pedals but for Christmas I will get a head
#15
well just use the acoustic amp on its own for now, then buy something like a Bugera 333 halfstack.

The amp has a beautiful clean tone and takes my distortion pedals real well. Would anthying not work if I bought a cab. I think it sounds fine now but I just need more power. The cab will still work right. I have a sweet distortion sound on it with my pedals.

Edit: the only difference in an acoustic and an electric amp is that an electric amp has distortion. I use pedals not amp distortion so the type of amp doesn't bother me. But I will get a 5150 head later

Acoustic amps are more full range like a PA. The speakers in a guitar cab are going to change the tone of your amp quite a bit. Nothing wrong with experimenting. But you not going too get many people familiar with what guitar cab goes best with an acoustic amp.
