My questions are:
1) am I risking damage to my gear by using a cab with 1 bad speaker? It's wired in correctly, and I AM getting some sound out of it (pulled it out and hooked it up to my stereo)
2) Since I *think* I'm getting some tone loss, I was considering pulling it entirely and changing the wiring accordingly. Is this dangerous? Should I pull 2 speakers (one bad one good) so I can get a 4 ohm cab (or is it 16 then?)
3) The distortion channel has a little bit of 'chop'. It's most noticeable when I play a triad and only happens for the first 1/4 second or so. I just got new power tubes so what's the problem? Could this be the bad speaker?

Assuming, of course, that the speakers are 8 Ohms.
Wire up just 2 speakers and you'll get 16 Ohms in series and 4 Ohms in parallel.
