    Hey all,

    Recently aquired a second nv610 (an nv610T) and I was curious about the ways in which to stack these two cabs. I understand side by side may be the easiest choice, but i was also wondering if stacking them on their sides for a higher point of levels for me during shows. Would stacking these cabs this way cause any cancellation/any negatives at all?

    Cheers,
    Mikael:bassist:

    Put them side by side, and then cross fire them.

    Vertical would be epic, if a bit impractical and hazardous.

    But you at least need to take a picture of it that way...

    By crossfire do you mean them both kind of facing inwards?

    And, the problem with that is?

    I'd go for a 206SP and a 312PB...............

    Two IDENTICAL Ferraris....Doesn't make much sense to me - but if you have the cash and it makes you feel good, go for it:D

    Dude - the OP is talking about stacking TWO basically IDENTICAL NV610 cabs. That was the reason chaosMK made the "two Ferraris" comment. I guess you missed the joke. While I don't know much about Ferraris I can tell by the numbers the two you posted must be different :rolleyes: I could probably baffle you with some motorcycle model numbers - but I won't bother...

    To the OP: I don't have anything constructive to add other than what has been said already except that I like the way you think!

    I'd stack them vertically, horizontal is not a stack. Just use some standard flying hardware.

    I think OP was meaning stacking on their long sides, "vertically". So 8 high by 6 wide. Don't do that.

    Do the crossfire.

    Wow thanks for the link! It's a shame the classic side by side setup isn't ideal... It looks brutal. But I'll definitely try crossfire cus in the end it's all about the sound.

    In regards to why? I play in a hard rock band, and we take some influence from stoner rock and doom metal....so it's very loud as thick, but still detailed! Our record is in the works.
