    What makes doing stereo in a rack better than mono? More tone, volume, or what? I thought that mono would have more tone because more wattage would be used at the same amount of ohms. Are there any losses or gains? I prefer to use my cabs stacked on top of eachother, 2 Goliaths. Both are full range, so would mono be the better option. Help would be obliged, and thanked for.
     
  2. I thought you had the 8x10?

    Oh well...anyway, the main purpose I would see for stereo is either if you're using stereo effects and/or you need coverage over a large stage, in which case, you can put one cab on each side. I don't think tone really has anything to do with it though.

    Or if you have 2 cabs that are not the same... so you can balance the volume to taste.

    haha, funky, you are so awesome for answering any questions i have. thanks, and btw, i changed about the Megoliath due to transportation issues at the current moment. Until I get a pickup, the 2 Goliaths will do, until I get the Megoliath, which I will.:D thanks again, buddy.
