4ohm + 2 8ohm

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by semborg, May 1, 2005.


  1. Will a 4 ohm cab and 2 8 ohm cab result in 2 ohms load?

    How can I do this?
    For example
    1 2x10 4ohms
    1 1x15 8 ohms
    1 1x10 8 ohms
     
  2. It depends how they are wired

    if the 8 ohm cabs are daisy chained i think it will, not too up on my physics tho im afraid

    You're correct. Assuming your amp as two speaker outs, running one out to the 2x10 and the other out to one 8 ohm cab, through that cab into your other 8 ohm cab will yield a 2 ohm load for your amp.

    Wired in parallel, you'll get a 2 ohm load with those 3 cabs.

    If they are all hooked up in parallel, yes.

    Most multiple speaker out jacks are parallel so unless you or someone else has done something special to any jacks or cords just daisy-chaining them will be parallel.

    :D
