Check out the wiring of a Marshall 1936 cab. It's stereo/mono with no switches involved and only two jacks.

Or the other option is to use two mono jacks and a stereo jack. Wire each speaker to it's own mono jack, then wire the tip connectors from each jack to the tip of the stereo jack, with the sleeve connectors wired one to the sleeve on the stereo jack and the other to the ring. That way you can use the mono jacks for stereo and plug a standard mono speaker lead into the stereo jack to give you the cab in mono, albeit with the speakers wired in parallel. So if you have two 16ohm speakers you'll have 16ohms a side stereo and 8ohms mono.

Or you could just wire up a three-way switch; those switching jacks are prone to wearing out after a while and, if running in stereo, might suddenly decide to run both amplifiers directly into each other :lol:
