    When building a 3-12 cab, How would you wire it? 3-16ohm drivers? 2-4s in series + 1-8 in parallel?

    What is the desired final nominal impedance?

    IIRC, that would give you a 4ohm load with what you've listed.

    Well, the most sensible wiring scheme would give you the same power to all the drivers, so three 16-ohm drivers in parallel (5.2 ohms) would be the obvious way to go.

    I can't think of any 3x12 cabs off the top of my head, but I believe the Epi 3x10 cab has 5.2 ohm impedence.
