i think i knew the difference a while ago, but now i'm lost again.

i believe a stereo setting on an amp is better, what what's the real difference between that and mono?

Unless you have 2 cabs set at either end of a room/stage or you're using a PA then you're not going to get a stereo sound, so I don't know what the hell you're on about with regard to stereo settings on amps.

Well, mono means 'one'. One sound from one direction. In stereo, think left and right. You get the left speaker and right speaker projecting sounds at you.

For an example of stereo, a lot of guitar tracks on Van Halen albums are almost totally panned left (if i remember correctly), so you can hear the guitar mostly coming through the left speaker, and a little bit from the right speaker. EVH didn't like this idea based on the thought that "what if your left speaker was broken? No guitar!".

so, there's no real stereo/mono issue in a 4x12 cab then? only for pa's and recording i suppose.

some heads are stereo (mostly when they have onboard FX) where dry and wet comes out of different speakers (like in a 2x12)

^ so for instance, what would be on the left as opposed to the right speaker (in a cab)?

Nope as far as i'm aware it's mono output into mono cab input when you have one cab. That's how my 5150 works.

that depends on the head. plus, stereo isn't even that effective unless you have some serious distance between the 2 speakers so people notice.
