  1. Okay, i have a predicament. here in two months, me and my drummer friend are going to enter a talent show, and all i have is an old ampeg b115. but i have two pa style cabs that are 8 ohms each. the amp itself has two 8ohm out puts. is there any way i can like chain the two pa speakers together (running one right now) so i can run them together at 8 ohms? i thought i remember someone showing a way to set up a cord so you could.

    Any help is appreciated!

    If they are 8 ohm speakers, you CANNOT chain them together in ANY manner to get a total 8 ohm load.

    If they are 4 ohms each, you can wire them either for 2 ohm or 8 ohm total load.
  3. so would i be better off wiring them for 16 ohm or just running one?

    yeah, if your amp is only stable to 8 ohms just use one cabinet
