Match ohms. If you are replacing an 8 ohm speaker then you need an 8 ohm speaker... Pretty simple.

Ohms are the gremlins found in electronic circuitry that try to keep the electrons from passing. Think of them as the trolls at the bridge...

But once we know how many gremlins there are, we know how many (amps) and how forceful (volts) the electrons need to be to get past them, thus we can design things that work.

If you try to replace a component with another having a different amount of gremlins, either the gremlins will stop the electrons, causing you problems, or the electrons will overwhelm the gremlins, often causing them to emit black smoke and a foul stench...

Hope that helps...

Glad you liked it.

I believe that it's (mostly) technically correct as well, so that's a plus...or something...

Your combo has a impedance selector switch, you can replace it with a speaker of 4, 8, or 16 ohms, so long as you move the switch to the appropriate notch. I, for example, have an 8 ohm speaker in my combo, so when I play it with just the combo speaker, I move the selector switch to 8. simple stuff.
