Hello people, so after getting the LC50 a few months ago (sorry I couldn't make clips yet) I've been dreaming about getting a 2x12 extension cabinet built (I got plans from the internet) for it, not only because it would probably be louder but also because it'll help with preventing tube microphonics due to sound waves pounding on the tubes from the back of the stock speaker's cone. Plus it'll probably help with tightening the low end a bit.
Here's the first problem: the LC50 has 50 watts of power, and I know that there are things like impedance and wattage that need to be considered when buying new speakers to match them to the amp. I plan to wire two 12 inch Jensen MODs in parallel, and each speaker should be rated at 16 ohms so that when connected to the amp they would only have 8 ohms (the amp's rated impedance), right? How about the wattage of the speakers then? For instance, would two 110 watt speakers add up to 220 watts when connected in parallel or would they stay at 110 watts?
According to the Jensen website, speaker watts should be at least double the amp's for longer speaker life. I assume that this has to do with the RMS/Peak wattage rating thing on amps? The one that says 30 watt amps MAY go a bit over 30 watts when 'pushed harder', for example? Should I use speakers with 100 watts total to satisfy this condition, or would 50 watts do fine?
Second problem: while I do love my LC50, I still keep my crappy MG100DFX for when I'm just messing around with effects and practicing, and so it would be great if I could also hook up the 2x12 cab to it if need be. However, it is rated at 100 watts. Again, according to the Jensen website, speaker watts should at least be double the amp's wattage for longer speaker life. If this were true, then I should get speakers with watts adding up to 200. However, going back to the LC50, how would speakers 4 times the amp's wattage affect the tone?
Thanks in advance for reading the post, I hope you could give some advice. BTW, I'm trying to save on costs so I just might the relatively cheap MODs, which seem to be favored quite well by people.
