4x12

  1. I've been thinking (Which is bad if you really know me) about making my own
    4x12 speaker cab but I have no Idea Hiw I would Wire the Thing







    HELP ME
     
  2. A pair of 2x12 is a LOT easier to haul around, and sounds identical if built correctly.

    You can parallel the 8-ohm drivers in each cab, then series the two cabs to get back to 8 ohms total load.

    It would be easier to put the (8-ohm) speakers within each cab in series, then parallel the cabs to get back to 8. Or you could put 16-ohm speakers in parallel in each cab, then parallel the cabs to get to 4 ohms.
