    I am triying to set up my first rig so I bought two DB112 cabs that I want to run into a benz genz sutthle 6.0

    My question is how to connect the cabs into the amp in a parallel way?

    The amp produce 300w at 8 ohms and 600w at 4 ohms, the cabs are 300w each at 8 ohms.

    The amp has two s speakon outputs and the cabs have one speakon input and two 1/4.

    Should I run two speakon connectors from the amp to each cab and then use a 1/4 cable from one cab to another?

    I am new and I have not idea how to do it and of course I do not want to cause any damage to my rig.

    I really appreciate your support


  2. EITHER:

    One cable from head to EACH cab


    One cable from head to one of the cabs, then one cable from cab #1 to cab #2

    DO NOT run a cable to each cab from the head, then also connect each cab to the other

    One way or the other NOT BOTH

    You can run 2 Speakons from the amp, 1 to each cab. Done. Or, you can run 1 Speakon to 1 cab, and from that cab to the other. Same thing. No need of a 3rd cable. Make sure you're using speaker cable.

    Thank you so much for the help.

    I will try one cable from the head to the cab and then one from the cab to another .
