How do you match amps and cabs?
Because modern amps have features that allow them to determine the impedance of the speaker cabs, it is best to match two 4 Ω or two 8 Ω cabinets to avoid “confusing” the amp. A “confused” amp may fluctuate in power output and cause damage to the amp. So matching Ω (ohms) in multi-speaker setups is important.

Can you mix amp heads and cabs?
However, in general, it is possible to mix and match different amp heads with different cabinets, and many guitarists do so in order to get their desired sound. If you’re just starting out, it’s probably best to stick with one amp head and one cabinet until you get a feel for how they work together.

Are amp sims as good as amps?
Amp simulators offer realistic tones, more convenience, less cost, and more options for guitar tones due to amp emulation software. On the other hand, recording a real amp provides the true experience but costs more for analog gear while being less convenient and flexible.
Do you need to match amp and cab wattage?
A good rule of thumb is the cab should be able to handle twice that rated RMS output of the amp. So if your amp is rated for 300W RMS, a 600W or greater cab is a good match. This won’t guarantee that you will be safe so don’t forget to listen for sounds of distress.

Can I use an 8 ohm amp with a 4 ohm cab?
so IS IT OK TO CONNECT A 8 OHM SOLID STATE HEAD INTO A 4 OHM CABINET? Does the head being a tube head change that? It’s fine on a solid state amp. Tube amps have to have a matching or higher impedance load (cab) than the head.

What order should my pedals be in?
Conventional wisdom suggests that the ideal pedal order is wah/filter, compression, overdrive, modulation and pitch-based effects, delay, and reverb.

Do pedals come before or after amp?
As a general rule, modulation and time-based effects such as reverb and delay, should go in an amp’s effects loop and all other pedals such as distortion, overdrive, fuzz, wah, compression, pitch-shift and boost should be placed in-front of the amp (before the effects loop).

How do you match amp to speaker cabinet?
Quote from video: Now actually it's not as complicated as it sounds and most manufacturers do make it pretty clear on the back of amps and cabinets which sockets you need to use depending on the image. For example the
Can you use any amp head with any cabinet?
Reasons to buy an amp head & cab
A head and cab setup is versatile in that it can be switched around easily. You can generally use your head with any cab (as long as the impedance matches up), and vice versa. This makes gigging, recording, rehearsing with a band and even upgrading your rig super easy.

How do I match my amp?
Quote from video: So first find the total RMS wattage of all the subwoofers within the system. This is the power rating you want the amplifier to output at the given impedance of your woofers.
