    I have two peavey 18" b/w subs can I run both channels to both speakers or run them parrell to save my ohms, or run both channels to one speaker

    What is the impedance of the subs? 8ohm or 4ohm. If 8ohm you can run both, if 4ohm you can only drive one cab. The BL600 only has ONE output amp that runs to two jacks.

    I think there both 8 ohm b/w thats what it says on the black I havent checked the speaker itself but there an older pair, if not can I run them parrell to get 4 ohms, or run both channels to one cab, low and high input
     
  4. I have a Backline 600 and hate it cant wait to get rid of this thing and get the new Mesa

    If they are 8ohm run a speaker cable from each output jack to each cab. That will give you a total 4ohm load and you'll be good. BTW most people really like that amp. But no amp will make up for bad speakers, bass, bad choice in knob twisting or poor technique. ;)
     
  7. well, i have one, and like it :)
    (although I am trying to shed it to cash up for something new)

    I have the 410-BLXII (400W) and once for an outdoor show I borrowed the 115 BLXII (200W) and ran them together.... As long as theyre 8 ohm cabs, run one output to each one and It'll do just fine ;)

    That head has a good reputation. Here is an excellent evaluation from Fdeck's webpages: http://personalpages.tds.net/~fdeck/bass/gkbl600.pdf
     
  11. Two ten can move just as much air as one 15. Big waste of time. The rumble is what it is. Rumble 350 doesn't allow extension cabs, not my drummer's one anyway.

    Your Backline has plenty of tone in it when you dial it properly. It has a baked in eq which you can take out. One of the cab building guys published a paper on it in his blog.

    It has one channel. The dual jacks are parallel wired so you don't need daisy chain connectors on your cabs.

    Can you sell the Rumble? Since you are all gung ho with the diy you ought to build some BFM's for the backline.
