    Is daisychaining particularly bad for either the amp or cabs in the chain? I'm thinking about getting 2x10 cab to add to my 4x10, but my head (a Trace AH350) only has one 1/4" out to the cabs. So I guess I really have no choice, I was just wondering if this was a recomended thing to do.
    Thanks!

    It won't harm your amp in anyway was long as you stay within rated ohm loads.

    I wasn't thinking it would, but I've read articles where some people discourage it saying it results in sigval loss, etc...to the cabs. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't going to sound bad due to loss of signal or something. And my ohm load will be within the parameters (two 8 ohm cabs).
