So, the shitty multi-jack panel on the back of my Peavey cab started to cut out, (thought my amp was toast!) so I just replaced it with a sorta similar, but actually made of metal, multi-jack panel (from Avatar Speakers).
It has three inputs:
A) 4 ohm mono, 8 ohm left stereo
B) 8 ohm right stereo
C) 16 ohm mono
Now, of course I didn't load this cab with 16 ohm speakers. Why make things easy. All the speakers are 8 ohm, so as installed, these values are halved. That's fine, aside from the 4 ohm mono, which is now a tranny-popping 2 ohm mono.
I'm OK with this, but I'm wondering (and now that I think about it, it doesn't matter *too* much about my F'd ohmages ) if I want to just rock the left side of my cab, if I plug the amp into A, into a 4 ohm out, and put a dummy jack into B, everything should be sonically and electrically peachy, right?
I tested this with a multi-meter, and it was reading 4 ohm alright, so I'm assuming B is a NC/NO switch that knows if something is plugged in, and they shouldn't cross-talk, since that's bad for business .
Don't see why that wouldn't work. I've got the same jack plate on both of my Zilla's and they're super fucking convenient.
