  1. yo, so I'm pretty new to all of this awesome tech out there and helix is my first multi Fx processor ever! great place to start right! lol so I have a lot of questions regarding a lot of things but I have narrowed it down to my top 4-5 regarding the (4CM aka Four Cable Method) and Proper impedance levels throughout the chain. First question: "Im curious to know whether or not I can "safely" plug strait into my Orange dual terror head from the helix mono out then from my dual terror into my cab?" (my first guess is no since my old amps power tubes "which were new" went out within a couple weeks." any isight on my newbie mistake lol? Second question: (which is method I'm most intrigued about and would like to use). Regarding "The Four Cable Method...." so from what I understand there is a variable impedance option available on the helix, which I am unsure whether or not this is what I should be using in this situation (and how to set up), or should I actually use a Suhr reactive load box back into my helix. my configuration vision: helix send 1 --> to --> orange dual terror input --> from the dual terror 8OHM Speaker out --> to helix return --> from Mono out --> fender deluxe 1X12 8ohm speaker cab. the questions: - Will this work without damaging my dual terror? - Do I need to be aware and set impedance properly at the helix, and how? - Can I go strait from helix mono out to my speaker cab? - Do I need to use a Suhr reactive load box when routing back to helix? (ref. example one.) (all without damaging any equipment) Example one: (signal chain with suhr reactive load) Helix send 1 --> to --> orange dual terror input --> from the dual terror 8OHM Speaker out --> Suhr reactive load input--> from Suhr unbalanced line output "10KΩ" --> helix return 1 --> from Helix Mono out --> fender deluxe 1X12 8ohm speaker cab. any insight or help would be great Thanks! happy Jammin!! - josh
