Mixing ohm loads? (LH1000 content)

    Just out of curiosity,
    Since the Hartke LH1000 has two seperate power sections with individual inputs for both would it be possible to run a 4ohm load off one side and an 8ohm off the other?

    I have an 8ohm 1x15 I never use and I was wondering if I could run it on "power section B" while "power section A" ran my 2 4x10s

    You *could*, but it would seem pointless, since the 15 in no way would be able to compete with 8 10's.

    No reason why you couldn't. I'm not sure what you'd gain from it -- for the 115 to make any difference, you'll have to be running the 2 x 410s at such low volume, that I suspect you'll lose volume overall.

    That's my theory, anyhow. Let us know how it works out!

    Yes you can although the 15 would add virtually nothing to your overall output. Run it over to your drummer so he can use it as his own personal bass monitor. You can contol it's volume separately from your 810 stack from your amp.

    Yes, that's fine. Just remember that turning up Channel B, to try to hear the 115 over the two 410's, means you will probably blow out the 115 in no time.

    You can do it 100% also with the LH 1000 theres a balance knob so you can even out the volume between the two cabs. Thats one thing I love about the LH1000.
