Can a mesa 400+ push 3, 8ohm cabs?

  1. i was just wondering about the load, i was just experimenting with gear and found i have a 4x10 deep diesel, a 1x15 diesel, and a 2x10 diesel. i was wondering what would occur if i ran all three. im also curious of running just all 10" speakers with it (total 6).
    but lowering the ohmage ration that low with 3 cabs, id like to be careful about. ???? guess im bored.
  2. Yup.

    Do it like this: Link two of the cabs together and plug them into the 4 Ohm output on the amp. Then connect the third cab to the 8 Ohm output. This will maintain the correct load on the amp. The cab on the 8 Ohm output will get 1/2 the power and the other half will get split between the two cabs on the 4 Ohm one. I explained why this works on a thread a while ago, I can dig it up if you're interested.
  3. thanks alot for the help.............happy holidays!
