Multi-tap transformers & speaker loads

I’ve been asked this question several times in as many days so it seems like a good time to discuss the question.  I’ve previously mentioned how the proper speaker load is important as well as matched speaker impedances in a multiple speaker configuration, so we don’t need to cover that again.  This is directed towards amps that have individual speaker output jacks for their various speaker impedance options.   Continue reading

100% mismatch of speaker impedance with Fender circuits

I’m often asked questions like this, “What can I use the extension speaker jack for?” or “can I use another cabinet at the same time as my internal speaker?”.  The answer is yes for the most part and you’ll find that a majority of the classic Fender amps will have an extension speaker jack with the exceptions being the smaller amps like the Champ or Princeton.     Continue reading
