    Well, my modest rig is almost complete. My 30 year old Acoustic 150b is fixed, I picked up a Workingman 2X10T and I am getting a WM 1x15T next week. My amp has 3 ports: SPEAKER 1, OUTPUTS 2, and BOOSTER OUTPUT 3. Would one of you bass amp sages out there be so kind as to suggest the best way to cable these two cabs? Also, I am puzzling over the tweeter settings as well.

    Thanks again for your patience with this slightly demented veteran from the acid days.

    I have no idea what "outputs 2" is , but the "booster" is a line output not a speaker output.

    You could always open up the amp and trace the wiring to see if "outputs 2" is also a speaker out.

    Otherwise: "speaker 1" to one cab, then daisy chain to the second cab.

    Tweeter settings? To your taste.
     
  4. It sounds like confusing labelling. If the "speaker outputs" label is above both the jacks and the 1 and 2 are below that and indicating one jack each, it's probably a speaker out. Cheers.
