I just got my brand new Orange 212 cab

But I look at the back and see that it has two sockets to plug into. My ValveKing only has one EXT. Cab out, so what do I do?

They're either In and Out, or Left (mono) and Right. Plug into In or Mono.


They're not labeled at all. All it says is 16 Ohms, 120 Watts RMS.

EDIT: Just realised how stupid I am lol. Do you mean the left hand one (if you're looking at the front of the cab)?

Does that mean that both the speakers will work if I plug in either one? I e-mailed Orange, I think it's a bit stupid of them not to label their jacks.
...

No, no, they're probably 8 ohm speakers, wired in series. Both speakers will work with either jack. Check that link in my previous post.

I did see the circuit board, I just want to make sure lol. I paid £400 for this cab, so: I can plug in either jack and it will work, with both speakers?

EDIT: And it will be 16 Ohms?

I think your Valveking is on the fritz, mate. Is it still under warranty?


I don't know if the warranty covers replacing the speaker, otherwise I would definitley send it back. I've had it approximately a year.

The problem is, I don't know what's wrong with it. It worked fine with the stock speaker, and it even worked when I accidentally mismatched the speaker that I replaced it with. I then go and plug it into a 16 Ohm cab that it's designed to be used with and it blows a fuse. Would tubes breaking blow a fuse?

I feel that you might have some OT damage from the long-term speaker mismatch. Possibbly power tube damage. Hard to say.

its really not a great idea trying all these random things out yourself without at least knowing something beforehand....

Note the word ACCIDENTALLY. I didn't deliberatley mismatch the speaker, and as soon as I found out, I e-mailed Peavey about it. The guy said that it would run hotter and that there would be slightly more tube wear (he also said there would be less headroom). I thought great, the amp's too loud to practise at home anyway. Then I thought, If I have a gig the amp's gonna be louder (and hotter) and the amp might blow up. So I bought an EXT. cab of the correct ohmage to use for gigs primarily. Then as I'm trying out te cab after I got it home, the amp blows a fuse. Please tell me what I should have done.
