    Can I run the Gallien Krueger 700 RB Bi-Amp through the Ampeg 8x10 without hurting the speakers? The GK is 380W + 50W. Low-380W@4ohm, 225W@8ohm, 1 kHz.
    High-50W@8ohm, 5kHz.
    The Cabinet is the Ampeg SVT-810E
    Frequency Response (-3 dB): 58-5KHz
    Maximum SPL: 130dB
    Nominal Impedance: 4 ohms
    Program Handling: 1600 Watts
    RMS Handling: 800 Watts
    Sensitivity: 100dB
    Usable Low Frequency (-10dB): 40 Hz
  2. It will work fine. However, The 50 watt tweeter will be totally ignored, because the ampeg cabinet is not set up for it.
