    I have an aguilar db750, and i want to load two 410 cabs. But the cabs available for me are one 4 ohm and one 8 ohm cabs. I don't know if it is OK to load the two cabs together? What will be the total impedance after I load the two cabs together? Thanks.

    yep, 2.67

    the 750 can take 2 ohms so that's fine. the 4 ohm cab will get twice the watts but will not be twice as loud. try it.

    just remember, as you turn it up, the 4 ohm cab will be taking a lot more of a beating. forget how loud it sounds, listen for distortion and if the cones start jumping like mad (a little movement is ok, "mommy please get me out of here" is not. ;)

    You can, but it will work about as well as putting 13 inch wheels on the left side of your car and 18 inch wheels on the right. :confused:
    For best results get two identical cabs.
