    Hi all,

    I'm planning to buy a Peavey 212-C for my Blackstar amp. Inside it is celestion vintage 30 and G12T-75. I like V30, but don't like G12T. So, I will change it to Creamback 75.

    This is the back of the cab

    My questions are:
    1. What is the impedance of G12T inside that cab ?? I'm planning to buy creamback with the same impedance.

    2. In the back of the cab there are two jacks and maybe a switch. If I want to connect this cab with an amp. Which one should I use ??

    Fyi, I have to place special order for this cab because the store doesn't have stock. So, I have to make sure everything is correct before deciding to buy.

    Thanks

    Judging by that panel, each speaker is 8 ohms, and they're wired in series to make 16 ohms when used as a mono cab.

    If using mono, use just the left input.

    Edited for a 3rd time. Reading comprehension.

    It says 8 ohms per channel.

    Stereo means two channels, so you would need two amps or two separate outputs from the same amp; mono means the two speakers are wired in series.

    I'm not sure if that's what you are asking, though.

    If you replace the speakers with 8 ohm speakers, you should be okay, as far as ohms go.

    Thanks. You answer my question.

    I have one amp. I guess mono is my only option (left input jack). On the other hand, my amp has many output options.

    Which one should I use ??

    Yeah, I would flip the switch down, then plug into the output on the left (1x16ohm) to run both the amp and the cab at 16 ohms mono, but make sure you flip the switch on the cabinet before hand.
