    A simple Q.

    Can my aggie gs210 an gs210 (both 8ohm) be linked to make a single 4 ohm load?

    Normally i hook them up to the two outputs in my db750, but I wanna try them with a bridged Crown XTI2000, which means having only one output from the amp.

  3. Can't you just daisy chain them? I do not have that cab so i am not sure what jacks it has, but you should be able to do that...

    You can do that with your db750. Why would you need another amp?

    Im not sure of the outputs on the power amp. But I think you have to have a special cable to bridge the amp. When you bridge, take the output to either the 1/4" or speakon and use the other 1/4 to chain the speakers.

    Not in front of my cab, but I think you have 2 speakons and 1 1/4" on each speaker.

    When you hook up two 8ohm cabs to the db750 you are running 4oms. It will auto sense the load down to 4ohms. If you just want to try it by using 1 speakon connector, you have to daisy chain the 2 speakers together. Run a cable from speaker 2 to speaker 1 then run a seperate cable from speaker 1 to the amp. My GS112's have 1 speakon and 2 1/4 inch connectors, so I use 1/4 to connect the speakers and the speakon to the amp.

    standard speaker cables and cab wiring is "parallel". if you hook up two cables from amp (one to each cab) the amp will "see" a 4ohm load. if you "daisy chain" cabs (amp>cab>cab) SAME THING...electrically speaking.

    Yup, either way you slice it. 2 8om cabs = 4ohm load:) Unless they are on seperate channels

    Just for clarity...

    Daisy chained (scenario A):
    Amp Ch 1 --> Cab 1 --> Cab 2 = 4 ohms
    Dual Channel (scenario B):
    (Amp Ch1 --> Cab 1) + (Amp Ch2 --> Cab 2) = 8 ohms

    Don't get too hung up on the type of cables (speakon vs 1/4") - I don't think that matters much, but as others have said do make sure you use speaker cable - not instrument cable.

    That's what I figured. Just wanted to make sure 'cause Aguilar calls them inputs :)

    I just wanna be able to mix my gear It's not that I'm unhappy with my db750. Far from it :) It's an awesome amp, even if it's on the heavy side.
    The crown/demeter is gonna weigh about half so i might just bring it sometimes when I don't feel like working out ;-)

    Thx guys

    If I remember correctly, the XTi has banana plug outs. You could use one cable to each cab with a banana plug on the amp side of the cable...go into each other, and then into both the + outs of the amp with the switch set to mono bridge (um...not sure but is the bridge mono/parallel mono/stereo function set digitally with the software on the XTi??)

    I assume the cable you're using from the XTi (bridged mono) to the cab is a banana plug on one end and 1/4" plug or Speakon plug on the other, so all you need is another speaker cable to tie the two cabs together. The GS speakers should each have two 1/4" inputs and one Speakon input, so any speaker cable with those type connectors can be used to hook the cabs together.
