    Hi, I have an SWR workingmans 15 and a Carvin 15, the Carvin is 4 ohm and the SWR is 8 ohm. I am gonna get a power amp and I want to know if it is safe to hook both of these together on one channel. I like the sound of these two cabs together and I want to get two more of the same cabs and I was gonna use a Carvin DCM2000 to power it. So if I had a Carvin and an SWR on one channel and a Carvin and an SWR on the other channel would it be ok?

    Oh yeah, I am in a loud band :D!

    Thanks

    No, right now I am pushing both with a SWR 350. I am gonna get a power amp and just use the 350 as a pre amp for now.

    If the amp is OK with 2 ohm loads (which I belive the DCM2000 is, when run in stereo) then it will work.
