Cab questions

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by axman, Aug 19, 2002.


  1. I have a gk 700rb head which it claims 380watts at 4ohms I'm running 2 bse4x10hlf cabs now. One cab for each output. I'm thinking of trading one 4x10 cab for a 1x15 cab. Also will be running the 4x10 out of one output and the 1x15 out of the other output. Being the 1x15 cab is 8ohms will it work? I'm not to familar with the ohm thing. Will I get enough power to the 1x15 cab? I'm haveing a hard time finding a 4ohm cab. By the way the 1x15 cab is a nemesis how are these cabs? Thanks for your help.

    Aren't the BSE410HLF's 4 ohms? You mean HE right? I would think you'd get enough power to the 1x15.
     
  3. Yes the BSE410 are 4ohms. What do you mean when you said " you mean HE right?":confused:

    Well you see the 700RB rubs 380 watts a 4 ohms. Two 8 ohms cabinets = 4 ohms. Therefor you're running two 4 ohm cabinets getting you a 2 ohms load. The BSE410HE is rated at 8 ohms and the HLF is rated at 4. You should only run one BSE410HLF or 2 BSE410HE. They're two different cabinet models.

    The GK 700RB is rated 380W@4Ohms, it is not capable of running at 2Ohms -> you should not use two 4Ohm cabs unless you want to fry the amp.
