Thanks for the V rating.

I hear you in regards to ohm loading. I think the only attenuator that does switchable ratings are the Power Brake, Ultimate Attenuator, and the Weber Mass.

I have found that the 2203 and 1959 model Marshalls as well as their 50 watt versions of the same amps will sound good if you halve the impedance of the amp to the cabinet. I have only tried this on a 16 and 8 ohm cabinets. Setting the amp to either 8 ohms or 4ohms respectively. I have no idea how other amps would react so not sure if I would try it on another brand or Marshall model. By halving the impedance you decease the headroom some and will be able to squeeze out a slight but noticable amount of grind out of the amps.
