After reading many great reviews and gathering enough money, im going for the preamp/poweramp. Im going to get the BBE Bmax and QSC 1450. My GK 700 RB just wasnt cutting it with my cabs. Now i have some questions. My cabs are both 8 ohm older model avatar cabs. I was planning on running the poweramp bridged at 4 ohms into my cabs and read that speakon cables must be used to accomplish this. My avatar cabs only have a 1/4 inch jack. Will i get the same output if i buy a Speakon to 1/4 inch cable? Also, Im kind of clueless about speakon cables, i know that their not as simple as 1/4 inch where you just plug them in and go correct? You have to set them up a certian way? Im still unsure about this. Im also unsure how to connect 2 cabs for running a bridged mono 4 ohm load. In the manual it explains how to connect 1 cab for a bridged mono load but not 2. Would i just run the speakon cable to one cab and then run another cable from the jack of one cab to the other? Im sorry if i sound clueless here, im just trying to find out as much as i can before i buy.
