    Default Fender tweed blues junior extension speaker

    I've recently purchased a Laquered Tween Blues Junior, and am very happy with it.
    I would like however to occasionally add my Fender GE-112 Extension Speaker Cabinet to the amps Jensen speaker.
    There is only one jack at the rear of the BJ for the internal speaker, so if I wanted I could run the Ge-112 instead of the Jensen, but I would like to run both. Both speakers are 8 Ohm.
    Can this be done? and if so, what would I need?
    I don't want to damage the amp.

    You can run one or the other but not both.

    Although not ideal, two 8 ohm speakers connected in parallel (using an adapter) will work fine, so long as not played too loud. A lot of Fender Hot Rod amps (including some BJ models) are configured with two speaker jacks (one internal & one external) which connects the speakers in parallel to produce a 4 ohm load on the output transformer. Tubes will also burn-out quicker though.
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
