    If you've got one 4ohm cabinet and one 8ohm cabinet and you're trying to connect them both to a 400+, how would one go about doing this in the best way?

    You take your 4 ohh cab and connect it to the 2 ohm output (like you are going to parallel 2 4 ohm cabs). Then you take your 8 ohm cab and connect it to your 4 ohm output (like you are going to parallel 2 8ohm cabs). I know it doesn't sound right but That's what they told me at Mesa. If you are connecting 2 8ohm cabs, you plug them into the total impedence jacks (4 ohm jacks).
