    Alright so i have an avatar 210, sansamp RbI, and bheringer poweramp and i am planing on getting a SB112 avatar cab. Right now i have the 210 set up on Mono bridge mode. How should i set it up when i add my new cab? I was thinking just putting a 1/4 cable in the 210 into the 112 would that work well?

    What is the impedance of your B210? 8 ohms?

    Will the SB112 be 8 ohms also?

    What is the minimum impedance that the Behringer can bridge into? 4 ohms or 8 ohms?

    If your Avatars are both 8 ohms and the Behringer can only go down to 8 ohms in the bridge mode, you'll need to run it in dual mono (stereo mode with one cabinet per channel).

    If the Behringer can go down to 4 ohms bridged (2 ohms per channel stereo) then you can connect the amp to your B210 and run a cable from your B210 to the SB112.

    Clear as mud?

    I checked out the Behringer site...both power amps will bridge into 4 ohms. As long as you buy 8 ohm Avatar cabinets you can bridge into both of them (amp to cab, then cab to cab).

    I presume that you're using the Output 1 speakon and the connector is wired for bridging (1+ and 2+). Correct?

    Should be a great sounding rig!!!

    The thing you should be careful about is the resistance, how many ohms are each cab and what is the min required for the mono bridge of the power amp

    The 210 is 8 ohms and i am planing on getting the 112 8 ohm. Yes the speakon is 1+ to 2+. So could i connect the 112 into the 210 and keep the same poweramp settings ?

    Not exactly sure what you mean by "settings" but yes, you can still bridge and connect both cabinets.
