  • THD HotPlate question for a Fender Twin

    As for impedance, a normal twin reverb is 2 x 8 ohms in parallel, giving an 4 ohm load. A Custom Twin has 2 x 8 ohm speakers in series for a 16 ohm load.

    The question is whether adding an additional cab would affect this.

    i.e. with a 16 ohm hotplate running a 16ohm load, could one in theory connect a 16 ohm cab to the other output?

    You would think in this situation, and 8 ohm model would be required? There website doesn't say anything on this, just that either speaker out can be used.

    Are the 1st and 2nd outputs of a HotPlate or an AMP :

    A) in-series with each other
    B) Parallel with each other
    C) Independant
