Other newbie amp question...

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by ElectraPhoenix, Apr 13, 2010.


  1. Hey, please excuse the other newbie amp question, but this is a quick one: so, when using a head with a speaker cabinet, it's true that the only thing that needs power (like from an outlet) it the head correct? The cabinet does not need it's own power supply, right? or does it? thanks. but so that would mean, at a gig where a band is using three amp heads, each running to cabinets, they only need to plug in the three heads, correct?

    thanks!

    Be careful, please !!! Make sure to connect the cab correctly to the head. Never turn on the head without the cab connected. Go to the old threads at this forum and learn about amps and cabs, it will save you money, time and from getting hurt.....:cool:

    The speaker cab gets its power from the amp, through a proper SPEAKER cable. Accept no substitutes.

    don't forget (or learn how) to to stay above or at your minimum ohm rating- put simply, more speakers=lower ohms!
     
  5. yeah, i know all about using proper speaker cables, not using instrument cables, and to make sure the ohms and handling power and all matches up. thanks guys.
