Hi,

Someone just gave me a speaker cabinet - 1x15".
I think it's probably from a PA system but I was thinking of using it for my Peavey 100W head at rehearsals, to save me lugging a 4x12 around.
Now, the Peavey has selectable output impedance - 4, 8 & 16 ohm.
The 1x15 had nothing on it, so I measured the impedance - 6 ohm!
So do I set it to 4 or 8?

Thanks.

Can't see any info on that unfortunately.

Check the make and model number. Some 15" won't handle a 100w head. Impedance, the speaker should be equal to or greater than the output. A 6 ohm is not very rare and may have been used as one of 3 wired as 2 in series and one in parallel with them to give an 8 ohm cab. Sounds like PA or Keyboard gear.
I pick up my guitar and play

6 ohms is weird. Never heard of a 6 ohms speaker, call me deprived I suppose xD

i read that when cab ohms are measured you only ever get around 3/4's of the actual ohm rating, if true that would mean ur speaker is 8ohm...
