    Answers have been more like guesses in another section so trying here:

    TSA15H --- Here's a pic of the back panel. The speaker it came with is 8 ohm so it would take the 1 x 8 ohm plug.

    I have a vintage JBL K120 in a second enclosure which is 8 ohm and may want to gig small rooms with 2 x 12 at times.

    Since there isn't another 8 ohm female plug back there, where should I plug in the JBL ?

    Should work anywhere without doing damage - am I right ?

    The way I read it the left 2 are the 4 ohm tap

    the mid 2 are the 8 ohm tap

    the right is the 16 ohm tap

    the left 2 are in a box labeled "2x8 ohm" 2x8 ohm makes 4 ohms.

    The mid 2 are in a box labeled "2x16 ohm" 2x16 ohm makes 8 ohms. See?

    Plug one into 1x4 and the other into 2x8.

    If your mommy and daddy never had that talk with you, I'm not sure I can help.

    "Plug one into 1x4 and the other into 2x8."

    No.

    The two left jacks are boxed together, and are the 4 ohm tap. Either one 4 ohm speaker in the jack boxed inside the larger box, or two 8 ohm speakers - one in each jack.

    The other method *might* work, but you'd have to look at the schematic to be sure and here's a 99% chance it won't. Plugging two 8 ohm speakers into the two left jack, OTOH, WILL work.

    This was a very common way of marking outputs on amps...especially bass amps...in the '70's and 80's.
