    Just wondering if someone can give me some insight. I have a BX3000T Bass head rated at 8 ohms max. and 4 ohms min. I'm using a Yorkville 115B 8 ohm cab and a Peavey 210TX 4 ohm cab. Now i know i can't run them together because the ohm rating is 2.67 and the head will blow. but if i rewire the 210TX to 16 ohms. Here is the question should i connect the 16 ohm to one out put and the 8 ohm to the other output. or connect the 8 ohm to one output and the 16 ohm into the 8 ohm . This will give me a 5.67 ohm rating. would both cab get equal amount of power.or will it be distribute 2/3 and 1/3. thanks

    Actually, the impedance of the 8 ohm and the 16 ohm in parallel will be 5.33 ohms.

    It doesn't matter how you connect it, the power will always distribute 2/3 to the 8 ohm speaker and 1/3 to the 16 ohm speaker.
