I have a Line 6 Lowdown solid state amp head. On the back it says 1 cabinet 4 ohms two cabinets 8 ohms only. I have 2 Ampeg 8 ohm cabinets does that mean I have to always plug in both cabinets every time i want to use my Lowdown head. I would like to only use one cabinet plugged in most of the time. If I only plug in one cabinet at a time could this damage either the head or the cabinets. Or do I have to get a 4 ohm cabitnet if i want to only use one cabinet at a time.

Thanks.

you can also use 1 8ohm cab, 1 4ohm cab or 2 8ohm cabs. it doesn't matter. You just cant go below 4 ohms total.

Usually, solid-state amps will have a minimal load (apparently 4 Ohms in your case), but will handle bigger loads (like an 8 Ohm cab) fine, though you'll lose output.

The jacks are likely connected in parallel, which means two 8Ohm cabs will equal a load of 4 Ohms total, which would get you just as much output as if you were using a single 4 Ohm cab. Remember not to connect a smaller load to the head (for example, two 4 Ohm cabs would equal 2 Ohms total, which might be critical).

A single 8 Ohm cab should usually be fine, but it's best to look at the instruction manual or contact Line6 about it.
