  2. 1. Which is the amp and which is the head?

    2. What are you thinking of doing with them?

    :)
     
  3. If you have the MAG300 head then you can connect a cable from this to the ABM210 speaker cab. The second outlet is so you can connect a second 8 ohm cabinet making it a two cabinet stack.

    Make sure you use speaker cables and not guitar leads !!
     
  4. Good point - Mag 300 is unlikey to be a cab eh?

    What was I thinking? :confused: :confused:

    Put it down to caffeine deficiency I think.

    :)

    The Mag 300 is the head. The ABM 210 is the cabinet. You cannot connect both outputs on the amp to both inputs on the cab. The amp has two outputs so you can run 2 8ohm cabs to create an overall 4ohm load - and thats the lowest load you can put on your amp.

    Actually technically you can and not cause any damage, but you don't need to. It would give you two cables in parallel.

    One cable is sufficient, as long as it's good capacity speaker cable and not instrument cable.
