Yes, sort of. The 2x12 combo has two 16 ohm V30's wired in parallel like so....
2 x 8 ohm speakers = 4 ohm load
2 x 16 ohm speakers = 8 ohm load
http://line6.com/spidervalvemkii/insouts2.html (it doesn't match the pic exact but the end result is the same)
making it a single 8 ohm load which is why they are using the "A" speaker output. Now the cab you showed has the option of two 8 ohm seperate loads or a 4 ohm mono load. So, the cab is wired in parallel as well meaning there are two 8 ohm speakers inside. If you want to run that speaker cab in conjunction with the internal speakers I would not recommend it. You will first have to move the plug from "A" to "B" and then find another cab with output for an 8 ohm load and plug it into "B" as well. Or, you could just use ONE of the 8 ohm speakers in your cab in conjunction so you will have three speakers going. NEVER PLUG SPEAKERS INTO "A" AND "B" AT THE SAME TIME!!

Hey, thanks for the quick response Found it really helpful thanks
So I found an amp called a HARLEY BENTON G212 VINTAGE, and ive attached a picture of the back of it, and one of the inputs in 8 ohms mono, so correct me if Im wrong... On the Valve MKII, i plug the internal speaker cable into the B section, and then with an speaker cable connect the OTHER B connection to the Harley Benton Extension cabinet??? Does this work?
And one more question (Sorry about all of them ) if I plug into mono, does that mean only one speaker will work? I, again, appreciate anything you can tell me ThankyouAttachments:

Perfect! That's it man, just plug both into the "B" output of the Spider valve. The only thing the "mono" setting does is allow you to use ALL of the speakers in the cab with one speaker cable. The stereo split allows you to seperate the speakers in that cab.
