I own a Peavey Valve King 100 Amplifier and would like to hook this up to my audio card's line-in without blowing stuff up, so I thought I should get a loadbox with a built-in speaker simulator. I will only be using one of the speaker outs of the amplifier as the loadbox only has one input.
The amplifier itself has the following specs:
- 100 Watt RMS
- Adjustable Resistance (4/8/16)
- Two speaker out ports (parallel)
The load box/speaker simulator has the following specs:
- Type: Passive
- Dummy load impedance: 16 ohms
- Input type: Unbalanced
- Output type: Balanced, unbalanced
- Max. load: 100 watts RMS
Would this imply that I should set the adjustable resistance on the amplifier to match the load box? Or should I only get an 8 ohm loadbox since the speaker outputs on the amplifier are parellelled?
Sorry for the extreme layman's terms.
