    Dont know if this has been asked before, or if I sound stupid dont mind me... :confused:

    But what happens if you have a 4 ohm and an 8 ohm cabinet together, what does the impedance become.

    Thanks

    I assumed it would be something like that, would it just take the proportional amount of power from the amp?

    Thanks
     
  4. depends on what kind of amp you have, but in general, yes
