    Hi all,
    I'm gasing for a Vox MV50 Clean for home use and some acoustic jam. I have a 2x12 and a 1x12 cab for the jams, while I would like to use it at home with an Orange 8" cab (https://orangeamps.com/ppc108speaker-cabinet/) I already own. This cab is rated 20 watts rms at 8 ohm, while the Vox head is rated 25 watts at 8 ohms. I don't plan to use it cranked at home, but I'm worried to damage the cab anyway.
    Do you think I should also buy the 25w Vox cab or that I'm fine with the Orange one?

    Don't crank it with distortion and it'll be fine. I doubt you'll use more than a few Watts at home anyway. Domestic harmony and neighbours to consider and all that.

    I just ordered the MV50 Clean and I will be experimenting with vacuum tube drive pedals to find out just how tube-like the NuTube devices are. should sound good since it is like a tube.
