    I have a hartke 410bxl and also a 210bxl. what is the best way to connect them both to my ha3500? if i use a speaker output each, i dont seem to gain much volume and im not sure if the vol is shared properly between the 210 and 410. the 410 has two imputs on the back, i read somewhere about using one as an output to the other cab or something?

    Cheers
     
  2. Do the ohms of the two cabs match?
     
  3. Since ALl I've ever seen hartke make(in 2 & 4x10s) were 8 Ohms, you'd have the same power output if you went from each output(as I do with my PV and JBL 15's, because of only 1 jack on each cabinet) as you would if you went daisy chaining the two, and one speaker cable coming from the head...You'll get 350W either way...

    :::EDIT::: Of course they don't share the same volume, each cab is getting 175W(1/2 of 350) but the 4x10 has more speaker area, so it'll move more air..
