Post Head/Cabinet wattage question
hai guise, I just got a Marshall jcm800kk (100w), but no cab for it (no moar money) I am going to build a 1x12 cabinet for it (for bedroom playing), so do i need a 100w speaker? or is it only the ohms that really matter? thanks in advance. :P

edit: btw, when i came home with the amp, i hooked it up to a small 8ohm speaker from a roland micro cube to try it out a bit, could that damage the amp in any way?

You could throw a Vintage 30 (60 Watts) in a 1x12 Cab. Now i wouldn't recommend setting the 2203 on 10. But if you keep the master below 6 you will be fine.

There's really no real answer, Just make sure the ohms match. If you can use an 8 Ohm speaker set your 2203 to 8 ohms - That way the impedance matches.

Whatever you do, Don't buy a 25watt Greenback. But a Vintage 30 or anything related to one will suit your needs.

Also, where are you located if you don't mind me asking? I have a beast mint Mesa Vintage 30 4x12 I'm trying to move. I understand you're short on cash. But if you have anything to trade(Guitars) i would entertain it.
