Can i use Jet City JCA20H amp with one 8ohm cab?

Hi, there!

Title says all. Problem is that manual isn't helpful at all with this question. This amp has one 16 ohm out and two 8 ohm outs. Schematics here:

"The JCA20H is designed for a 16ohm speaker. You may also operate this
amplifier in conjunction with additional speaker cabinets. An 8ohm or 16
ohm speaker cabinet will work fine with the JCA20H, but we do not
recommend using a 4ohm cabinet. "

So, is it ok to use this amp with single 8ohm cab, and will it affect sound somehow?

The amp wants to see no lower than an 8 Ohm load.

You can arrive at 8 Ohms with two 16 Ohm cabs or a single 8 Ohm cab.

No Problem.

Somewhere on the net i have read that these 8 ohm outputs are for two 8 ohm cabs, that's why i'm a bit confused. Unfortunately i don't understand schematics. :(
