    Hey guys i have a question.

    If i have a head that is rated at 2 ohms.

    Could i hook up 2 8ohm cabs and 1 4ohm cab to it?

    Would i have to daisy chain the cabs together?

    If so how would i do about doing that thanks a bunch!!!

    2 8s and a 4 will give you 2. Daisy chain is fine. Two into the back of a mono amp with one extended off of the other should also give you 2 ohms.

    If your head is rated at two ohms, you can run any impedance down to two ohms on it. Eight ohms is fine, so's four. You don't have to run it at two. You'll just get a little lower power at the higher impedances.

    This is true for solid state and hybrid amps, not for tube amps. Ask somebody else about that.
