I have a Mesa/Boogie Mark IV short head, an Orange PPC 212 Openback cab, and an Orange PPC 212 Closedback cab. Can I rig the Mesa into both of them simultaneously or would that cause some issues with impedance etc?

Both cabs feature:
- 2 X Celestion Vintage 30
- 120 Watts Power Handling
- 16ohms impedance.

The Mesa Mark IV has two 4ohm speaker jacks and one 8ohm speaker jack.

Any ideas if this is doable?

in short: yes (probably)

how: not quite sure, someone else will hopefully will be able to furnish you with that information as to ohms and all that.

silly question: do you have 2 outs for cabs in the back?
Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.

There's a daisy chain output on one of the cabs, is there? Your total load is 8 ohms. You have to daisy chain them off the 8 ohm output.

" The Mesa Mark IV has two 4ohm speaker jacks and one 8ohm speaker jack."


Do the cabs have 4ohm in jacks?

As the cabs are 16ohm, I'm guessing they contain 2x8ohm speakers in each. Rewire to 4ohm & you're sorted

either of these options would work.

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.
