Hey guys, I'm contemplating buying another orange 4x12 and an orange rockerverb 50 mk II.
both orange cabs are 16 ohms...but the rockerverb has 3 speaker jacks: 8, 8, and 16. how would I wire that together?

wouldn't I need a second 16 ohm jack for it to work? or could I do something crazy like run one 8 ohm jack to a cab, then run that cab straight to the other cab?

16 + 16 = 8


I understand this. but how do I wire that with a head that has two 8 ohm jacks, and one 16 ohm jack?

With my 5150 it's easy, flip it to 8 ohms, one cable to each cab.

the orange head doesnt have an ohms switch.

would be equally criptic.


but

"When using two Orange 16 ohm speaker cabinets attach each
one to a separate 8 ohm output socket on your amplifier.
When using a single 8 ohm cabinet attach it to either one.."


from

http://www.orangeamps.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Orange_RKMKII_User_Manual_web.pdf


would be more helpful.


So the moral of the story.


If in doubt.


RTFM.

that's really misleading lol. doing that would make me think I'm overpowering each cab.
but if orange says it, it must be right!

It's the same thing as your 5150, except you don't have to flip a switch.

The load becomes 8 ohms, so you plug them both into the 2 8 ohm inputs...

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

My TH30 is the same. Run one cable from each of the 8ohm outputs to each 16ohm cab. That's what the manual says.

The amplifier's output transformer has two windings - the higher voltage 16 ohm winding is connected to the single 16 ohm socket. The lower voltage 8 ohm winding is connect to both 8 ohm sockets in parallel.
