So I was having a quick glance at the back of my amp the other day (Bugera) and I noticed there is a switch on the back of the amp with 3 different Ohm (Ω settings... I presume this will affect the resistance of the circuit within the amp but I was wondering what it does to the amp... I don't want to go tinkering and knowing my luck breaking something Cheers

You match the ohms of your cabinet to the ohms of your head, using the switch. That is its ONLY purpose. Anything else and you're running a mismatch which can damage the head.

You match it with the impedance of the speakers.

Have you ran it without matched impedance?
