is it ok for me to run a 16 ohm speaker with an 8 ohm output? my amp only has one 4 and one 8 ohm output, and my new speaker is rated at 16 ohms. if it makes any difference my amp is a randall tube amp (rh50t)

you can, but it won't be as loud, also, it's not giving the speaker an 8 ohm load, the load is the impedance of the speaker.

Just don't.. Go with a 8 Ohm cab.. Don't take any chances of breaking the amp with changing the ohmage

having a higher rating (up to a point) won't damage the amp. and it's impedance, not ohmage.
