eden amp at 2 ohms

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by worldwidepants, Dec 16, 2001.


  1. Can I run my wt-300 at two ohms?
    If I can then what will the power rating be?

    The reason I ask is I am thinking of adding a 115xlt to my (4 ohm) 410xlt

    arggggg....why couldn't you have just got an 8 ohm 410XLT..... now it screws you over. I wouldn't run anything, personally, at 2 ohms. You're just begging for meltdown. The 115XLT is 8 ohms I believe, so anyways if you mono'd both of them together, that'd be a load of 2.667 if I'm not mistaken.

    Whatever, just run the amp in stereo, thats the best solution you can do if you want to add that 15".

    Do the specs tell you that it can handle a 2 ohm load? If not, you can't. Well, you CAN, but not for very long... catch my drift? ;)
     
  4. You can always run them in series. It's a little trickier to wire up but then you won't be at 2 ohms but 8. Your power output will be lower at 8 ohms though.

    No, you can't. Per the manual.
     
  6. alright, didn't think so. And I definately don't want the amp to fry. can a higher powered eden head run at two ohms? I don't really want to trade in the cab for an 8 ohm, it would be underpowered when I use it as a stand alone for smaller gigs. Or should I just get a higher powered amp AND an 8 ohm cab?

    The only Eden rated at 2 ohms is the Metro combo.
