    Could i run three 8ohm cabnets with a 4ohm head? What aoubt a 2ohm head? thanks.
  2. 3 8 ohm cabs, generally speaking, when run with a 4 ohm head, Will fry the head, DON'T TRY IT.....If I'm guessing correctly, since two 8's are 4, then 8 8's are 2.67, like an 8 and a 4....2 ohm head would work...Correct me if I'm wrong, Experts..
  3. why the hell would you even want to use 3 cabs ?

    anyway.. just put a small poweramp on the line-out of the head, to feed the 3rd cab.
  4. AllodoX, if the power Amp doesn't have a line out, he would lose the ability to run through a PA if by chance he was running through it....

    Unless the head was an Ampeg like mine which has a cannon jack(mic cord) line out and a 1/4 inch line out. Even if not, that's nothing a $25 direct box wouldn't cure.
