AMP rebuilding

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by AllodoX, Jan 27, 2002.

  1. Here's my old 30W practice-amp.

    I'm thingking of re-building it, and putting one of these in it :

    12" , 150W/8ohms, 30-1.400 Hz.

    the speaker has WAY more capacity than the amp, but the amp has a jack-plug for an extra cab, which means that the amp is able to pull 4ohms ( making the power higher )... so if i somehow manage to put another 8 ohms parallel to the speaker.. things should work out.. right ?
    but the question is.. how do i make an 8 ohms resistor that can handle the power ?
