Is daisy-chaining harmful in any way?
As long as the amp can push the two cabinets, is there any harm in sound when daisy-chaining the cabinets?
(I just picked up a used Carvin mono amp with two outputs, but one of them has a short so I'm thinking of running the good output to cab 1 and daisy-chain that to cab 2. Luckily, one of my cabinets has two speakon connectors.)
No difference at all so long as the amp can handle the combined impedance load.
It's actually the same as using the 'two' outputs from the amp-they're connected in parallel so really they are one. As long as the total impedance of the two cabs combined is not less than what the amp is spec'd for (probably 4 ohms) you're good.
Edit: It turns out the culprit wasn't the amp, but the brand new speakon cables I picked up from Monoprice. The connector looks like a Neutrik, but for whatever reason there's some slack when placed into the amp. Even when it's plugged in, there's about 1/16 to 1/8 movement. That slight movement was the cause. I tried the speakon cable that came with the amp (which isn't a Neutrik type), it snapped into place and didn't move one iota.
I'm really disappointed in the new cables. They are thick, heavy and look to be durable. But they don't play well with the Carvin. Funny thing...they play together nicely with the Acoustic Image amp.
