    I was just wondering if this was possible without blowing the amp? I know the amp spec says min. 4-ohm. I think if I connected these 2 cabs it would be 2.667 ohm? If the amp could handle that, would more power go to the 4-ohm cab (which would be good as it is bigger)?

    Hopefully Agedhorse can give me some info?

    Thanks!

    No, that is not a safe possible combination, which is why we said not to do it.

    If we didn't mean it, we wouldn't say it ;)

    Ok thanks Agedhorse. I just thought I'd check in case those were "alternate facts". :)
