Hi there, I wanted to know, for sure, if someone has done this, or if I won't have any problems replacing my current 16Ohm stock speaker from the VK112 with one Celestion V30 of 8Ohm and 60W.

The difference is half Ohms, and 10 more W, will I have any problems? Or should I do it?.

Thanks.

OK, just needed to know, cause I'm from Argentina, and I don't know where to get them, and I saw 2 but both where of 8OHm, I will continue looking for a 16Ohm. Thx.

Unless the VK has an ohm switch for the speaker your stuck using 16 ohms. Tube amps are pretty sensative to having matching ohms.

I had the doubt because in the back of the amp there is a plug where it says 'Speaker - min 8Ohm', but that is for an external speaker :P.

Sorry to high-jack your thread but if I get the head and a 2x12 cab w/ 8 Ohm speakers, I set the amp to 16 correct?

if you have 2X8ohm speakers, you could get 16ohm or 4 ohm, depending on if you wire it in series or parallel, assuming you want mono operation

Also, without a impedance switch, it would be wise to stick to the same impedance loudspeaker(s)/cabinet

If it's an 8 ohm cabinet set your amp to 8 ohms.

As far as the amp is concerned, it see's 8 ohms and doesn't care what is inside the cabinet. If the label on the cab says 8 ohms, it is an 8 ohm cab and you must set your amp accordingly.

Well the thing is, when I get my VK head soon, it may be a little while before I can get a 2x12 cab so I'm going to have to use the speakers on my MG250 until I can sell it and get a cab. On the output jacks, there is a 8 (Greek letter Omega) next to each jack. I'm confused whether Ohms is 8 or 16 for both speakers combined.

You have two stereo speaker outputs on your MG250, one to each of its 8 ohm speakers (the impedance should be stamped on each speaker). You should have a wire coming from each speaker.

The ValveKing 100w heads parallel speaker output impedance is selectable, 16, 8, or 4 ohms (the Omega symbol stands for ohms). The manual should spell out exactly what output impedance you should select. Here is the link to the manual: http://www.peavey.com/assets//literature/manuals/00575730.pdf (I couldn’t download it here at work).

Post back here if you still have questions.
