    Okay guys. Im new to having more than one cab. Youre going to hate me cuz I use behringer. I dont care I actually like em.

    Alright I have:
    Bx4500 (450W @4ohm)
    Ba1500 (600W @8ohm)
    BB410 (1200W @4ohm)

    Is there a way I can set this up for a full stack?

    Thanks guys

    If I am correct NO. Your head is rated for a 4ohm load. If you use the 8ohm and 4ohm cabs toghter it will be less than 4ohms and could fry the head. You can use the 8ohm or 4ohm cab but not both at the same time. To get the most out of your head you will need two 8ohm cabs or just one 4ohm cab.

    So there's no way i can put them together? What would series do? Im thinking that will give me 16 ohms instead of 2 with parallel

    Series & stuff like that is over my head so I can't help you with that. I have only been playing for a little over 2 years & just know "ohms" enough to know that two 8ohm cabs equal 4ohms and that two 4ohm cabs equal 2 ohms. Hang in there I am sure some one more knowledgable than me will give you some great advive

    Correct, read the stickies. Short answer, no you cannot use that gear together, and if it's a 410 and a 115, you don't want to anyway. Read.
