    Hey all,

    Looking to get a new amp head to power some cabs I was given. The cabs are both rated at 4 ohms. The amp in question (traynor small block) has two outputs with a minimum of 4 ohms. Does that mean minimum per outputs, or total for both. If I'm doing the math correctly, if it's 4 ohms for both outputs combined, then it would be a 2ohm load and that is bad.

    4 ohm minimum is for the whole load, both output jacks combined.
    Correct, two 4 ohm cabs would be 2 ohms combined.
    And, also correct, this would be bad for your amp.
    abarson and viper4000 like this.
