Kustom 2 x 10 cab impedance

1

I found a Kustom 2x10 cab this past weekend at a thrift store. No markings regarding ohm input on the two inputs jacks in the back, so I opened it up and found the 2 10” speakers wired in series. I checked each speaker with a multimeter, and each speaker shows 16 ohms. So the 2 speakers wired in a series would be 32 ohm total.

What are examples of an amp head that could be used with this cab?

I was hoping I could use this with a Lil’ Vox Night Train, but it looks like this isn’t a good idea because the Lil’ Night Train has an 8 ohm output.

rewire two 16" speakers to parallel, and you have 8 ohms. One thing is odd though - if you measure speakers with a mulitmeter, you typically don't get a reading that's the exact speaker impedance...?

Right- The reading was12 and I rounded it to 16
