primarily because they match


but i remember reading that if the ohms dont match up, it will totally mess up my amp

so i want to know what the rule is with matching up ohms and how should i connect it

someone said i should use the speaker jack in the back or s hould i jsut use the preamp out jack on my amp?

NOOO use the speaker jack for cabs!
And the ohms must match or the cabs ohms must be higher than the head's otherwise the excess power will blow your amp
ohai little sig.

You need an 8 ohm cab, and you'll have to disconnect the internal speaker. I don't know how well these new Fenders handle impedance mismatches, so you'd have to replace the the internal speaker (with a 16 ohm one), and get a 16 ohm cab if you want to use both at the same time.
