Hartke LH500 and Ampeg 410HE issue
Im a newb when it comes to cabs and amps for bass, and ran into a little issue today.
At practice im using the LH500 which has 2 8ohm outputs and runs 500 watts at 4ohms, and i believe 350 watts at 8 ohms.
On the back of the Ampeg cab it lists it run 500 RMS and lists 8 ohms.
During practice at a fairly high volume, I saw the warning light in the cab lighting up a bit.... which means I was pushing it too hard i guess.
does anyone have any ideas as to what i should do about this, do i need another cab, or a different head.
Excuse me for being a noob when it comes to this, any help would be greatly appreciated
Only worry if the light stays on more than half the time.
Adding another 8 ohm cab will definitely give you more volume.
so 2 8 ohm cabs at 500 watts each would be fine with a head that runs 500 watts @ 4 ohms?
Yes, the power from your head will be split evenly between two 8Ω cabs. Don't get too fixated on the wattage ratings of the cabs.
The light you saw was just a protection bulb for the tweeter.
thanks for the replies people, you helped out alot!
