What does the impedance mismatch do that is “Noted” in the Sweerwater product description?
I've used 8 ohm 1x12 and 1x15 extension cabs with Twin and Pro Reverbs. Those both have 4 ohm transformers. The total ohm load running like that is approximately 2.7. I don't know how they came up with 3.2 ohms. It's a minor difference but I'm just curious. Regardless, I found running that kind of mismatch had a "looser" feel and the harmonic distortion is more apparent. I think the speaker damping factor is a little lower. We are really splitting hairs here but a good player can tell the difference. Calling it mojo works for me.
I've even run a 4 ohm extension cab. I did not like that as well. If you look at photos of major groups in the '60's (Byrds, Jeff Airplane and others) it is common to see a Twin Reverb setting on top of a 2x15 Dual Showman cab. Fender transformers would take that kind of abuse. Marshalls, not so much. It is also why it is not uncommon to see wax drops formed on the bottom of those vintage Fender transformers because of the heat.
