    I've been following the 2x10 and 2x12 threads with interest. Someone mentioned using two single 12s along with the 2x10 instead of a 2x12. This seems to make sense for flexibility and portability.

    My question is how to hook up the 2x10 and two 12s cabs so the result is an ideal 4 ohms. My amp is mono and has two speaker outs so obviously one cab would have to be daisy-chained. Does daisy-chaining of say two 8ohm cabs result in a 4 ohm or a 16 ohm load?

    Most PA cabinets (at least that I have seen) that have 2 1/4" inputs are wired in Parallel.
    So daisy chaining from one cabinet to the another would be 4ohms.

    Hmmm... so if all three cabs are 8 ohms that means 4 ohms on one output jack (8 and 8 daisy chained) and 8 ohms on the other that makes a total resistance of ... about three ohms?

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Note: Mono amp with two speaker outs, not stereo
