    Sorry for yet another ohm related thread but please help. :rollno:

    If I connected a 4ohm can and an 8 ohm cab to different outputs on the same head, the cab would run at 6ohms putting out the wattage of its 4ohm rating? Or would it be 2ohms running at the amps 2 ohm wattage

    Then, if I where to connect a 4ohm 15 and an 8ohm 12 to the same head the 15 gets twice the wattage of the 12 right?
    How would this sound? (Avatar b115h and Aguilar gs112)

    well reading the ohms faq linked in the faq sticky mighta helped......... ;)

    anyhow, you'll be running the cabs in parallel that way (as you would if you "daisy chained" them together. your total load will be 2.67 Ohms, so make sure your head can handle a 2 ohm load 1st.

    yes, the 4 ohm cab will draw 2x the power. w/o knowing the sensitivity and voicing of the cabs from avatar i really cant say how it'll sound. but i'm sure dave at avatar could give you more info in terms of that being a good match or not. It could work, or the 15 could bury the 12.
