    Hey guys, I've got a bit of a quandry that I could use your collective expertise on.
    My current basic amp setup is a Coliseum-300
    Through a SVT Ampeg 410HE
    I've been on a neverending hunt for a SUNN 215. But much to my avail it seems impossible to find something in my immediate vicinity.
    Recently however, this ad popped up. http://harrisonburg.craigslist.org/msg/4325158086.html
    2 Sunn 115 RH. Now these are rated at 80 watts at 8 Ohms.
    Is there any way to make this work alongside the 410?
  2. Not in the sense of worthwhile volume.

    Those are very different design that probably would be a challenge even with a DSP and separate amps for the cabinets.

    On the other hand, as long as you keep within allowed impedance at the amp, a test costs nothing. You might even like what comes out!

    Well the head is rated at 300watts at 2ohms. So i don't think overreaching the impedence would be a problem. Wonder if there is a way to just combine the two cabs into a single input.

  6. No way to get appreciable power into the 4x10 before the horns blow up.

    The amp has some kind of crossover. You could biamp, but the volume capabilitities are so much mismatched the horns would have to be on highs, maybe they would phase okay, maybe not.

    I figured as much, I passed on the purchase. Will have to keep searching i suppose
