power delivery based on ohms

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by bassking511, Oct 23, 2006.

  1. hi
    quick question---
    if i have a 4ohm cab and a 8ohm cab,i know it will be 2.67 ohms total but will each cab get a diff amount of power even thought they create a total impedance?
    (rough #'s)
    example amp-----1200W @ 2ohm

    4ohm cab=800W

    8ohm cab\=400w

    (#'s are real, just for example)

    If you're asking whether each cabinet will receive the same amount of power, I'm not sure. If you're asking whether one cabinet is likely to be louder than the other, I believe that would be a function of each cabinet's sensitivity.

    The 4ohm will recieve more power. It would be optimal to have a 4ohm 410 and an 8ohm 210.
