Hi Tygr1!

Yes - and, err, no ;-)

It´s (somehow) safe to say that a Fender-amp can (usually) handle a 100%-mismatch - but it´s still possible that the tubes or transformer will suffer from it.

It´s perfectly OK to try it - imho - but for extended periods of time, or for a long-time set-up, I´d look into other possibilities.

Like, for instance, if you run a 16-Ohms extension-cab, the total load will be around 6 Ohms, and I wouldn´t be concerned...

cheers - C.
