  1. hi members, like i just said, i want to built a cabinet with 4 new 10`speakers(160 wats max. 8 ohm, each one) that a friend gave to me, & i want some info or a few links to visit.
    i have a B 100 II yamaha head, with this impedance:

    1 or 2 : 4 - 8 ohm
    1 + 2 : 4 - 16 ohm

    ....do u think is better, i mean cheaper, but good, if i buy the cabinet or if i built it??
  2. Dear Rodrigo,

    First: do a search on cabinet building. It's a subject that's been discussed here dozens of times.

    Second: if you do that search you'll find out that to design a cabinet, you'll need to know the Thiele/Small parameters of the loudspeakers you're using. Only then you can make an accurate prediction of what the cab will sound like, and if it'll hold up to the head you're using.

    In other words: you find the the Thiele/Small parameters of the speakers (brand and type should be enough to look them up or request them from the manufacturer), and then we can help you design and build a cab.

    If you don't have the T/S parameters, there's nothing you can do but just build a box, and try if it sounds reasonable. But it'll never sound very good this way.
  3. sorry i don´t know what u mean.
    thanks for your fast replay, Joris
  4. wait, if you put 4 32ohm speakers in one cab, wouldn't that equal 8ohms.....sorry if this is a dumb question

    It would equal 8 ohms, but not many people make 32 ohm speakers. I know GK does though.
