so, as i recently used, i cannot use my 2 8x10s in parallel because it would equal 2.67 ohms, and my amp has a 4 ohm minimum. I'm going to eventually buy a new amp that is 2 ohm capable, but in the mean time i want to get the most out of my 2 8x10s.
i am currently only using 1 of them, and the other one is sitting there looking pretty and fridge-like. i want to make both of them talking fridges.
i have a:
ampeg svt 810, 1x4 ohms or 2x8 ohms
crate bx 810, 1x8 ohms
as i've been told (please correct me if i'm wrong), if i wire the 2 halves of the ampeg in series, i would have a total of 5.33 ohms. I also found out that all of the inputs of the ampeg 8x10 are ins and outs. so...
(as a note, I'm referencing the input jacks as they are numbered n the product manual, from here: http://www.ampeg.com/pdf/SVT810EAV.pdf
i wire from one amp output to the ampeg input jacks 2/3, then out of another 2/3 into 1. then from the other amp output to the crate imput.
would this effectively put the ampeg in a series 2x8 ohms, with the crate in parallel, giving me 5.33 total ohms?
yes, i know that 2 8x10s are unnecessary. i know it's pointless. i want to do it anyway.
i hope somebody can tell me that I'm correct, but if not i'll just wait until i get my next amp.
