I wanted to get 2x 16ohm speakers but found a pair of nice g12 65s both at 15ohm.

I currently run my 8ohm cab with 2x 16ohm speakers into my sound city at 8ohm.

Is it ok to do the same with the 15ohm celestions?

Thanks, Luke.

yeah i think so

don't quote me, but i think so EDIT: i imagine that's what's happening in my lionheart cab, so yeah, i assume it's probably ok.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Yes it is fine... The 1/2 ohm difference isn't going to make a difference. You need to remember that the impedance rating isn't fixed, it varies with frequency (and it can vary more than you would expect!)

Yes. That's 13 ohms of dc resistance. Impedance is the geometric sum of the resistance to both dc and ac. Resistance you measure on a multimeter is always less than the total impedance of the speaker.
You'll be fine.
