A SWR amp Question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by FashionJ, Aug 2, 2009.

  1. I got a SWR Workingman's 15 combo already, and I prepare to get a Baby Baby Blue combo, now I think about this and need help: Could I use the BabyBlue Head Extension Jack connent to Workingman's 15s' speaker(include tweeter)? does it work?
    I wanna the BabyBabyBlue's tube preamp to through its' 10" speakers and workingman's 15 speaker(with tweeter) work at the same time. Cound that be success?

    Thanks for any suggestion about it.

    Kind regards

    Have you read your amp's manuals re minimum speaker impedances?

    If you can't use the cab alone, there should be some way you could do it...like maybe a line out from the Baby Blue to the input of the Workingman. But SWR doesn't usually cheap out on the design of their higher end combos, so I would think you probably should be able to use the 15" cab. Check the impedance limits and make sure they're OK first, because it's entirely possible I'm wrong.
  4. I got some information:

    SWR Baby Baby Blue Specifications:

    [Maximum power at 1kHz under clipping]
    120 Watts RMS @ 8 ohms
    160 Watts RMS @ 4 ohms

    [Cabinet Internal Impedance]
    8 ohms

    SWR Workingman's 15 Specifications:

    [Power output]
    160 Watts RMS, 200 Watts RMS @4 ohms
    (with 8 ohm extension speaker)

    [Cabinet Internal Impedance]
    8 ohms

    is that ok ?
    I think those are 8 ohms cabinet, that would be alright,
    and using BabyBlue's Head to connect 15" cabinet,
    finally I will get one Tweeter + 10" speaker (BabyBlue internal)
    and Tweeter + 15" speaker (Workingman's 15 internal),
    is that currect?
  5. It sounds correct. You may have to use a extension speaker cable to hook up the 15 inch speaker to the Baby Baby Blue combo's exttension speaker out jack. The impedance is will be 4-ohms total, which is alright.
