    My SWR 350 has two 1/4" outs. if I hook it up to a single 8 ohm cab with two inputs, say an eden 410XLT or an aguilar GS212, will the resulting load be 4 ohms if i run both amp outs into both speaker ins?

    (I'll make a few assumptions here)

    On a solid state amp with 2 outputs, the outputs are in parallel.
    On a cab with 2 inputs, the 2 inputs are parallel.

    If you plug in a single 8 ohm cab into the head, it's 8 ohms.
    If you plug (2) 8 ohm cabs into the head, it's 4 ohms.
    If you plug an 8 ohm cab into the head, and another 8 ohm cab into the first 8 ohm cab, it's 4 ohms.
