    I've just bought a Hartke 410TP cab in order to extend my Hartke 2155 combo amp, but am slightly confused about this paralell/series extension malarky...

    ...would it be best for me to run the 410TP cab straight out of the combo amp, and then use the extension output on the 410TP cab to link up the speaker on the 2155 combo?

    Any suggesions gratefully appreciated mon amigos

  2. I have an 1155 model, discontinued even longer ago than what you have.

    You're a little confused about the whole amp accessories thing. The short answer is, leave the combo's internal speaker plugged in as it is (which gives an 8 ohm load to the amp, yielding 120 watts or so - I think - ), and plug your 8 ohm 410 Transporter into the other available speaker output jack (assuming there is one) on the back of the amp, right next to where the combo's internal speaker is connected (at least, that's the way it should be!) This thing has the model 2000 head, which delivers 200 watts into 4 ohms, if I'm not mistaken.

    There are no series/parallel issues to deal with, other than knowing that the amp's outputs are wired in parallel, and your combination of speakers provides the optimum load to the 2000 head.

    That ought to be a potent combination.

    Thanks for the reply Whacker!

    Yep, I was getting over-confused about the parallel/series thing...but I've plugged in as you've suggested and it's sounding peachy :)

    Chuffed with my set-up now. Always loved the tone of the 2155 combo but have been pushing the speaker too hard, to the detriment of the sound quality. Now it's perfect!
