I purchased a used Ashdown Engineering guitar amplifier from a local store. On the back it has 2 speaker inputs (it's a combo), one for the 8 ohms internal 12" speaker and on that says "external 8 ohms speaker. I am wondering what kind of cab I need. would the Bugera 4x12 work on the 8 ohm setting. Or do i just need anything more than the 75 watt rating on the back?

The amp is a hybrid 50 watt.

Thanks

The internal would be for the speaker that comes with the combo, and the external jack would be for another cab. Since it's 50 watts, and if you'd be using both at the same time, 25 watts (most likely) would be available to power the exterior cab. So, any 8 ohm cab that can handle 25 or more watts should work just fine.

i am guessing this has a tube power section and a solid state preamp? so it probably wants a matched impedance with the cabinets. any cabinet wired to 8 ohms that handles over 50 watts should do, so you should be fine with the bugera 4x12. just to let you know, running 2 cabinets will kinda kill some of the feedback and harmonics because(as best as i can tell this is the reason) the cabinets run out of phase with each other. i much prefer running just one cab with a head

looks like the amp has a all tube preamp and a solid state output section from what the Ashdown website says. im guessing you have the Ashdown Fallen Angel DSP 50 combo?

IMO i wouldnt run anything thing over a 2x12 cab, but it should be able to push a 4x12 cab as well. but 2 cabs would be pushing it. i would just run a 2x12 cab since the power output on the amp is 50 watt solid state.
