I have a Flextone II Plus and I'm considering on removing the chassis and installing it in a smaller cabinet to function as a poor man's POD.  I plan on using the headphone jack but if I should inadvertantly power it up without a speaker connected. will that cause a problem?

 

Thanks.

It's not a problem running a solid state amp without a speaker connected. You'll be fine.

Thanks.  I knew that was a general truism with solid state amps but just wanted a sanity check before I pressed on.

Hi all! I have a secondary question to this issue regarding my Flextone III XL...

If Flextones are ok being run without a speaker load, can I disconnect both the internal speakers and safely connect an 8ohm cab to just ONE of the rear outputs? (This is so I can just hear the sound from the cab only - rather than one of the internal speakers still being active.)

Cheers
