    Hey all -

    I thought about throwing this question onto the Ohm sticky thread, but since its a question specific to my amp, thought I would try a new thread. For any and all who are knowledgable about not only the SVT III but electronics in general, any feedback would be appreciated.
    Basically, I am trying to add a 1x15 to my existing 4x10HLF. Because the amp is already 4ohm and the cabinet is 4ohm, I can't do it cuz it brings my "ohmage" to 2.67 (assuming the new cab would be 8 ohm). Is there a way I can run a line out of my head into an external power amp that would run power for the new cab while sending the tone-shaping into the new cab from the old head? Does that make sense? I want the "sound" of the SVT III running to both cabs, with the SVT III powering the 4x10 and a power amp running the 1x15. Can this be done?
    Very much a newbie to all things "techy", so pardon the question if it is an easy yes or no.:help:

  2. It can be done by running from the FX loop "send" to the power amp.

    The question remains WHY ?

    The 1X15 is going to go no lower or louder then the 4X10 you already have, so what exactly are you trying to gain ?

    I guess I'm just not happy with the sound. Would like things to be a bit "rounder" at the bottom. Like I said, I'm not too familiar with the differences between speaker sizes, but I just thought that having an additional 15 would move more air, thus more sound. I take it you think my rig is plenty beefy enough already though?
