    Need help! I put these two together and when i set master at cca 12 oclock, or even less, speakers cannot handle it, at the moments i get very annoying and unbearable sound. Am I missing something?

    Check ohmage of each cabinet and the minimum ohms you can run the amp. Most don't go below 4 ohms

    If ur mixing a 4 ohm and 8 ohm = 2,67 ohms, which is fun IF you can run the amp at 2 ohms

    Just one ?

    Did you only replace one speaker with a non-matching ?

    If so, that is your problem. You cannot mix different speakers in the same cabinet, let alone mix impedances.

    If you replaced both, how are they wired ?

    If you connected them in parallel, you are showing the amp a 2 ohm load.

    +1 to Bass Pounder's questions. The amp can only handle a 4-ohm load, so if you have anything below that (two four ohm speakers in parallel = 2 ohms, one four ohm and one eight ohm in parallel = 2.67 ohms) stop using them immediately--you're lucky the amp hasn't fried yet.

    Need more info, but I believe BassPounder is onto it.

    One other possible flaw is if your box happens to be tuned high, they could possibly be unloading. Wouldn't know without descriptions a little more detailed than "annoying and unbearable".


    Also note: having a volume knob at noon in no way whatsoever means you're only using 1/2 power.

    Ive replaced them both, and did it the way original speakers where. Not sure was it parallel or serial :/ Ill check it, please stay up tuned. Ill also try to record what I mean by annoying. btw. Both speakers and combo are 4 ohms, but combo is 320W speakers are 200W

    Original speakers were almost certainly two 8-ohm speakers in parallel, so if you did the same thing with 4-ohm speakers you've been very, very lucky to still have a working amp. Do not record anything -- rewire them to series and see if that takes care of it.

    If you hooked them up just like the old ones were, you may have given yourself a 2 ohm load. This couod have cooked the amplifier, or, if the amplifier survived, it may have cooked the voice coils from the increased power, or a little bit of both.


    While you take it apart to wire it in series, push on the cones to check for any rubbing/scraping sound.

    Report back what happens.
