    If I connect two amps together at 4 ohms each, does that make it 2 ohms or 8 ohms? or does nothing change at all?

    if u connect two 4 ohm cabinets it brings your load down to 2 ohms, two 8 ohm cabs down to 4 ohms, four 8 ohm cabs bring ur load down to 2 ohms, a 4 ohm and an 8 ohm cab bring ur load to 2.66667 ohms

    is having the load at 2 ohms bad or is it good?

    it depends on what ur amplifier can handle some can handle 2 ohms and some can only handle 4ohms

    Cool, I'll check into that thanks for the help. Oh yea do I have to check both amps to see if they can handle 2 ohms or just one amp?

    what bass head r u using u have to check the head to see wht it will handle as far as minimum ohm load
     
  7. If I am reading your post correctly you are wanting to wire the speaker connections of two amplifiers together. You should not do this. One or the other and possibly both of your amplifiers will be destroyed.

    I tried this, all I get is a hiss from the fender rumble 100. I am thinking I need to use a female XLR connected to the D.I. out on the behringer amp, then connect to the input on the Fender Rumble 100. You think this might work?
