Project cab wiring question .. 4 ohm or 16?

Discussion in 'Amps [BG]' started by NickfromSOS, Jul 23, 2013.


  1. I have been working on a project cabinet that has 4 Eminence Delta 10b's (the 16 ohm version, 350 watts) in it. It is my understanding that this configuration can be wired to produce either a 16 ohm (series-parallel) or 4 ohm (parallel) load, both with a 1400 watt power handling (4x350). Which wiring option is a better choice? I would be using this cab with either a qsc power amp capable of a 4 ohm load, or bass heads capable of 4 ohm loads. It was wired for 16 ohm operation previously, so I would need to rewire for parallel.

    If you plan to use it by itself, 4 ohms.

    If you plan to run it in parallel with another cab (from the same amp), 16. Unless the amp can drive 2 ohms.
