    I know I should know the ohm rating on my guitar cab, but I don't.
    Here's my question;
    I've taken a multimeter and metered the speaker cable coming from the cabinet. It's a two 12 cabinet. It reads on the meter between 6 and 7 ohms.

    Does this mean I have a 16 ohm cabinet?

    Someone told me that if you wanted to figure the ohm load for your cabinet without opening the back of it, you could meter it and the meter would tell you ( X 2 of course ) what the ohm load would be.

    Anyone know about Ohms and figuring them?

    Oh, also My Blockhead Custom 50 will be at Solidbody Guitars in Minnesota if anyone wants to buy it. I traded it for a Blockhead 100 watt Plexi model. The guys there are fantastic..

    speaker wiring

    Sounds like you have an 8-ohm cab (2 16-ohm speakers wired in parallel) on your hands.
