I want to try out my Peavey with my friends cab. The Peavey is rated at 16 ohms for an external speaker, but I don't know what rating the cab it. Is there a way to see what the ohms are on a cab? Also, what would happen if I plugged it into a cab lower than 16? Would it cause permanent damage to the amp or cab? thanks.
go boom.

learn some green day. they are totally brutal.
the cab will be fine, its the amp that will have problems, if you're lucky the fuse will blow first and nothing else will happen, but thats a pretty rare occurrence, in all likelihood the amps output transformer will blow and possibly the tube will blow too. Its not permanent damage but it'll be a few hundred bucks to get it fixed.
