    How to run two heads (solidstate) stereo into an 8x10 classic cab?

    You've got to rewire the cab so that one head drives some of the speakers and the other drives the rest. You absolutely cannot let the speaker outputs of two heads be connected to each other.

    I can still run both heads mono without having to re-wire right?

    You can run one head at a time, mono, with no re-wiring.

    I meant mono-bridged.

    yes bridged is the only way if you have a head capable of stereo.

    sorry for all the noob questioning. So if I run both heads mono bridged, would it be the same as running two 4x10's?

    Does your cab have two completely separate inputs, one for each of two sets of 4x10?

    So let's think this through. If there's only one usable input (or pair of inputs connected to each other), for all eight speakers, then how do you plan to connect it to two separate amps, or use the cabs as two 4x10's, with no re-wiring?

    Edit: re the E/AV, is that the same as the "Classic" that he has?

    I think it is the same as the classic but I am not positive. if it's this: [​IMG] then yes it's the same. That's a picture of an Ampeg Classic SVT-810AV

    i'm using the 8-10e. If you look in that manual, there is an upper and lower 4x10 input. so if your running two heads, you plug one input into the upper 4x10 and another into the lower 4x10. So wouldnt that be considered running stereo? I'm not sure if the inputs are connected, or if they are ran to seperate speakers? :help:

    If there are separate inputs on the cab for the two 410 sets, then you can plug two amps (whether the two sides of a single stereo head or two mono heads) into the two inputs on the cab.
