Dude thanks so much. I've always wondered that and if amps with multiple jacks would work like that. I've always wanted to see a amp manual for an amp with that set up and you just confirmed that for me. Clearly the internal circuits compensate. Logically my brain would say NO!! running a single cable labeled 8ohm to a single 16ohm speaker. As much as I'd like a matching Orange speaker cab right now it's not in the budget along with the amp.
