i have recently purchased a fender bassman 250 watt 2x10 bass amp,i am thinking of perhaps adding a speaker extension to it..the impedance is 4 ohms.. so am i right with matching this amp to a speaker extension of the same impedance ie..4 ohms..and what would happen if i matched it with one of 8 ohms(just curious about that last question)

IIRC that amps runs it onboard 2 10s on 4 ohms. The minimum and maximum the amp will take is that four ohms. So if you add another cabinet, 4 or 8 ohm the amp will die.
The only way you're going to be able to add extra speakers is to disconnect the internal speakers and add either one 4 ohm cab or two 8 ohm ones.

ok dude that makes a lot of sense, the amp is loud enough anyway so i dont really need a speaker extension..thanks for the advice!!

It's kinda stupid really, why provide an output for an extenstion when you have to disconnect the internal speakers first? Makes no sense. :shrugs:
Glad I could help.
