    Ok so i have a BX3000T 300 watt bass head. two individual outputs. rated at 8ohms max 4ohm min. My cabs are a yorkville 115B 300 watt 8 ohm and a Peavey 210TX 4 ohm wired in series to 16 ohms 300 watt. According to science it gives me 5.333 ohms total and my amp should be fine. two questions first. should i connect the 115B to one output jack and the 210TX to the other output jack running parallel or run the 210TX with 16ohm rating into the 115B with a 8ohm rating then connect a single cable from the 115B to the amp head? question 2 is if i run them into each output what is the watt ratio for each cab since the ohms rating is different. And if i run one into the other with a single connection to the head would the powering rating only read a 5.333 ohms cab instead of two seperate. thanks guys for all the help. Billy aka kickinbass

    I'd try it in every possible hookup method, and see what sounds best.
