Hey everyone, I managed to wire up my speakers to the 1/4 jack and they work when I plug it into the external speaker out of my old amp, sounds pretty good..

However, I do want to measure the speaker's impedance before I use it with my new tube head. On the back of the speaker, it says 8 Ohms (btw, I'm only using a single speaker). When I measure it with a multimeter, I get a reading of about 9.3 Ohms. I'm touching the needles of the multimeter to the tip and sleeve of the jack, is this the correct way to do it? And is that a normal reading for an 8 Ohm speaker?

Thanks for the help everyone, you've been brilliant

Yes, you are using the multimeter correctly. And 9.3ohms seems well within the allowable range for an 8ohm rating.

this is great to know!
so it's definately safe to plug into the 8 ohm output of my tube?

Yes, you should be absolutely fine to hook it up.
