I know that turning a "TUBE" amp on without a speaker load on the output will damage the amp.

(the no-load condition will cause the output voltage to increase until the output tubes burn out, which can then lead to other component  damage)

 

Is this also true for a CODE 100 amp?  Is there a risk of damage to the output section, with turning the unit on without a speaker cab load connected?

Would it be safe to operate the amp with just headphones connected instead of a speaker cab?

Would it be safe to operate the amp without either a speaker cab or headphones connected?

I ask because my computer (which is a desktop) is in a different location in my house than my amp.

Doing firmware updates or testing out patches requires either moving my computer or my amp, both of which are very inconvenient.

It would be much easier if all I had to move was the head.

So I've been thinking about buying a Celestion F12-X200 speaker for my code 50 and was wondering it this would work. The reason I need to know this is because even though I know you can use an 8ohm speaker on a 4ohm tube amp, I'm not sure about a digital amp. Could anyone tell me if this is possible.

High, first off, I am new to the modeling world, my main rig is peavey and Line6 DT25 tube rigs.

I bought a Code 50 as a quick and reliable solid state backup/practice amp to gig with if needed.

I love the sounds of it but at times the BASS just takes over even when Bass knob is rolled to

zero. no matter what settings i use the Bass is booming. I am thinking of a speaker upgrade

possibly but is there any advice on settings that may help me pull the mid range out more. I 

use Super Cleans and Gritty Gains. Hard Rock/Metal sounds

Hello

In the manual is told not to use the Code 100 head without a speaker? Why?

I think it's not a valve amp.
