  1. i've been in the market for a new all tube head lately and really have my eyes set on the orange ad200b mk3. so with that said i've been reading up on some specs about it and realized it only had a 8ohm, a 4ohm, and a 2ohm input jack, so my question being, qould i be able to run both my 8ohm mesa powerhouse cabs with it or would new cabs be a thing to look into as well. Or would there be anyway to run both 8 ohm cabs into the 4ohm jack. thanks for the help in advance.
  2. anyone???
  3. Plug cab 1 into 4 Ohms and plug cab 2 into cab 1.
  4. Wouldn't that put them in series, giving 16 ohms?
  5. No, all jacks on cabs that I know of (except those wired in stereo) work in parallel.

    This is correct. You'll be fine.
  7. Other way, two 8ohm cabs linked is 4ohm.
  8. Wait...so pardon my ignorance, I actually never knew that...

    If I have two 8 ohm cabs (which I do, as of last week), then to get them to run at 4 Ohms I need to plug one into the amp and then plug the other into the the first cab?
  9. Yep :)
  10. Welllllll, that explains why the 3 times I've tried to hook up multiple speakers the end result was so unimpressive...

    Thanks for the tip, I can't wait to hear how my new GS12s sound at 4 ohms!
