Flextone plus cab wattage

Hi there,

I have a question regarding the power output of the flextone 3 plus when connected to an external cab.

it is my understanding that when an 8 ohm cab is connected to the "Right" speaker jack, 75W is supplied to the internal speaker, plus another 75W to the external speaker for a total of 150W. Now, when connecting an external cab to the "Left" speaker jack (which bypasses the internal speaker), is the amp supplying the externl cab with 75W or 150W?

This has been puzzling me for a while now, any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

From the manual:

Flextone III Plus - If you have a Flextone III Plus, the speaker out jacks will be labeled Internal and External.  Plugging into the Internal connection disconnects the internal speaker and lets you run a different 8 ohm speaker cabinet instead.  The External connection is designed for the Flextone Cab, and operates at the same time as the internal speaker.  It supplies 50 Watts of power to the Flextone Cab, giving you a 100 Watt Stero setup.

Thanks for your help.

I've read that before but wasn't quite sure how to interpret it since there were other conflicting statements in the manual.

But anyhow, I'll just assume that plugging into the internal jack supplies 50W to the external speaker.

Thanks again,
