8 Ohm 100W Non-Inductive Dummy Load Resistor
can I run this for a live application what I want to do is run 2 8ohm cabs and have 2 of the 8 ohm dummy loads to give me the 2 ohm load for that chl on my pwr amp, do these work for that
that would not get you any more output. A dummy load will just take the extra power and waste it as heat. The amp will be working twice as hard, but you will still get the same sound output from the speakers.

Can I get 2 of these and wire them like I would speakers to get a 4 ohm load?
I just noticed that you have 4 ohm load resistors on your site so question answered!

To be clear, this allows a tube amp to be operated without speakers present, with the dummy load's two leads wired to the amp's speaker posts in place of those speakers. Correct?
It may not be safe with all tube amplifier output transformers but for the most part, yes, that would be the idea.

How do I hook these up? Is there a schematic of this item? Thanks.
These are Dummy loads meant to connect across an amplifier to simulate a load. No polarity is observed.

This is a similar question to someone else's but I want to be clear.... Can I use this WITH an existing speaker in a 1x12 combo amp simply to reduce wattage to the speaker? I would like to halve the wattage to the existing speaker while playing.
This will technically lower the output of the speaker, but simply turning the volume down on the amp will do the same thing and not waist power as heat through the resistor.
