    I've devoloped an idea. My Avatar B212 is 4 ohm, and i have the QSC RMX1450. Now, if I add another 4 ohm cab later I will have 450W into each = total of 900W. If, however, i had two 8 ohm
    cabs and bridged both, would i then get 1400W? I'm starting to think I woulda got more power goin the 8 ohm route and bridging. PLEASE HELP!!!!

    You're pretty much correct... if I'm understanding you the right way. My bass player has the same power amp, and will soon be getting a B212... but he's getting it in 8ohms, so that he can get another cab in the future and still run bridged.
     
  3. And i would get more power from runnin two 8 ohm cabs bridged than two 4 ohm cabs normally (because i wouldnt be able to bridge them)? Or am i missing something...
