    No it's not a math problem, or is it?

    I have 3 cabs, an Ampeg 4x10, an 810E and a 1x18. The 4x10 and 18 are both 8 ohm, and the 810 is a 4 ohm. Can I run all 3 heads with my SVT-CL? I'm assuming the math would be right, 8ohms + 8 ohms on one tap would give me 4 ohms, and the 810 would run on the other tap, with the amp set to 2ohm output.

    I want to run all 3 at once, just for that extra oomph, and because, well, why the hell not? :D

    Will this work?

    Indeed! I rehearse on the 2nd floor, and there's no elevator! I have a feeling that only the 810 and the head will come out for gigs.

    Interesting thread, would a V4B power an 810E and a SVT118E?

    That would be louder than the inside of the sun.

    Or just the 4x10... Conrad Lozano always an SVT head driving what I assume is a rental 4x10.. works for him with key's drums. percussion and three guitarists with 50 watt 4x10 rigs ... of course being pro - I'm sure they work to make it all balance on stage ...

    If it's a real V4-B and not the V4-BH reissue, yes. (The H only has 4 and 8 ohm outputs).

    Yes, it is a V4B (red/blue logo version). It has a 4 or 8 Ohm selector switch on the back.
