speaker cable. just make sure the ohm rating is the same on the cab and speaker output on the head.

Speaker out (normaly a Ohm rating of 4, 8 or 16 is standing underneath or above it) >speaker cable > cab input (same thing with the Ohm rating. make sure that the ratings match [4 into 4, 8 into 8...] or are above it [head:4 into cab: 8, head:8 into cab: 16.....])

hope ypu got the idea.

the rule of thumb is speaker wattage should be double (?) or +50% (?) but it should work fine. the main issue is the ohms. what does the head output say and what does the cab say on the speaker jacks?

yea u can buy any cable with 1/4" plugs, but make sure its a SPEAKER cable. plug one end into the head, and the other into the 4 ohm spot in the cab.

yes it does matter. it NEEDS to be a SPEAKER cable. not a instrument or patch cable. a SPEAKER cable.

Nope. As long as it's a speaker cable you're good to go.
