Hey guys, I couldn't find an answer to this question in the literature so I asked Mesa, figured I would share.

In my old Mark hundred watters, its known that if I flip the switch to 60w mode to maintain a proper load match I would want to move the 8 ohm speaker load to the 4 ohm jack. I could not find anything about this in the Multi-Watt literature so I asked if this was also the case here or if the amp somehow handles it internally. I was told that the amp has no way to handle it internally so I can move the jack if I want to. Reading between the lines, I think that they're not worried about it since the OTs on Boogies are so robust, but I figure if I can have a correct match I'd like to since an incorrect match will change the response & feel.

Before I asked, one night I was rehearsing (loud) with my band with the amp in 50W mode in the 8 ohm jack and I noticed that I ran out of headroom- I had to dime the solo boost to get it to be a little louder for leads. I'll have to try it again now with the proper load..
