Hello All,

First of all sorry for the relatively noob question, I was not able to find what I was looking for online.

I would like to plug a Peavey 6505 head to my audio interface using a Torpedo Captor box.
Spec wise this head reads:
120 watts (rms) into 16, 8, or 4 ohms (switchable)

So my questions are:
- The captor accepts max 100Watts, is this still ok to plug this 120 watt head? but not going full volume?
- Which version of the captor makes more sense, 4, 8 or 16 ohms? as the amps is switchable is not issue but in the long run... which impedence is more .... common/practical ?

Looking forward to your inputs!

Thanks!

From what we see on our side, the best seller is 8 Ohms, that must be the most common impedance rating on amps. ;)
