    What load would I get by combining an 8 ohm cab and a 4 ohm cab. If I get an amp that will handle a 2 ohm load will the above cab combination be OK. Thanks for your comments. Steve

    2.67 ohms is correct, if you have an 8 ohm and a 4 ohm cab in parallel (normal way to connect them). This should be fine with an amp rated as okay down to 2 ohm loads.
