Due to the size of the stage area, volume of the mains / monitors, my proximity to my cabinet (pointed at my knees), I was not able to hear myself well, sometimes not at all. So I was considering using one of our spare monitors as a personal guitar monitor. If it works out I might actually build a small 1x12 for this.
I'm using the Mosvale - 4 ohm amp - Channel A only. It's currently pushing my 2x12 which when is also 4 ohms.
My question is, can I use the other output of Channel A to also power an 8 ohm monitor? So there will be one 4 ohm load, and one 8 ohm load on Channel A. Will this cause issues? Overheating of the power amp? Blown speakers? Any other bad stuff.
Any other advice out there is welcome.

I think I will do what you mention - I'm probably going to build a small 1x12 monitor and run that from the B channel. That will also give me a separate volume control for the monitor.
Will search the cab forum to see if anyone has posted any simple designs.
