I have a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp, and i just have a quick question. I know if you connect speakers to it you have to make ohms and such, but if i just used the Pre-amp Out and hooked up to a different amp head's line in so i could use the cab, would it still hurt my amp if the ohms doesnt line up?

Basically if i use the line out to another amps line in, will the ohms matter?

i'm not sure if not matching ohms will hurt.
if it does you could buy a 'hot plate'. it's a really cool unit that will match ohms.

or let your amp cook hot, but keep the volume under control.

Yes, the ohms must match or be slightly greater on the cab than on the head you're using to power the cabinet. (not the HRD)

i.e. 8 ohms into an 8 ohm or 16 ohm cab.

Just make sure the speaker is still working when you do it, because the HRD will still need a load.
