    Hey!

    I know this sounds really stupid. But I bought an amp, with 2x10s and 1x15? Now do i run them both thru channel one..... each cab thru each channel.... or am I suppose to run the 2x10 thru channel one and then plug the 1x15 thru the ext. system on the first cab?? Help..

    guys i'm talking to her on AIM about it... BTW, she's running a Behringer UB502 mixer>>>headphone output>>> DCM 600>>>RL2x10, RL115. i suggested a crossover-plug into it, run lows into channel 1 on mixer, highs on channel 2, then output to bridged poweramp.
     
  3. Melanie, you can run one cab out of each channel.

    Or you can run them in "series" or "parallell".

    Try the first suggestion first and we can go from there.

    ? Headphone out sounds like a bad idea. What's wrong w/ the main out? A crossover is ok but not necessary.

    mixer -> amp -> 2x10 -> 1x15 if cabs are 8 ohms
    mixer -> amp -> 2x10
    \
    2x15 if cabs are 4 ohms

    edit: formatting isn't coming out right, I was trying to show the 2x15 on the 2nd amp channel.
