Last evening I decided to move my amp away from the 2 OBC115s I have connected to it. Normally I use both of the two power amps, each "amp" carrying an 8 ohm load to each cabinet. Well, since I only had one 25 foot speaker cable, I decided to run one line from one of the "amps" and then a shorter cable from the first cabinet to the second, making it a total 4 ohm load of cabinets (each cab is an 8 ohm cabinet). What I ended up with was a really "cut" sound lacking deep bass even after turning the volume up. The cabinets are wired in parallel.... Any one have any explanation why this is?
I have no problem running each cab as an 8 ohm load off of both amp "A" and "B",... just wondering why it sounds so thin when both cabinets are made into an 4 ohm load using just 1 amplifier in the Shuttlemax12.0 Is this normal?
Any explanations? Thanks, in advance!
