    Are each of the 10's 32 ohm, and the 15 is 8 ohm? Just wondering how they spread out the ohm load.

    This is a fullrange cab right? The 10's are probablt wired together creating an 8 ohm lad and then wired to the 15 making the cab a 4 ohm load.

    Yeah thats what Im saying, just didnt word it right.

    32 Ohm 10's wired in parallel to equal 8 ohms, then the 15 wired in parallel with those, creating a 4 ohm load.

    Also, could be 8 ohm 10's, and four of them wired in a series/parallel combination sums to 8 ohms, then added to 8 ohms for the 15 yields 4 ohms for the cab.

    They're either 32 or ohm speakers . . . my money is that they're 8 ohms each.

    I doubt they use 32 ohm speakers. They probably use 8 ohm speakers. Listen to Eric, he's on the money

    OK I assumed he was telling us that they were 32 ohm speakers. :rolleyes:

    I agree that they are most probably 8 ohms as well.
