Quick Question on my Head and Cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Bassplayer5115, Jan 9, 2005.


  1. OK i read that thing about the OHMS but i couldny find my answer.

    Right now i am using a Hartke3500...I believe it is an 8ohm head that can handle 2 cabs

    (ON the back it has 2 outlets to an amp for 8 ohms each)

    my cab is an AmpegSVT 1X15. It is rated at 4 ohms..

    am i Doing my head any damage? by Running this amp with this cab?
     
  2. No, your amp is capable of running into 4 ohms and that's what will give you maximum power output. You're fine.

    What Nashvillebill wrote...plus, keep in mind that you CAN NOT use another cabinet along with your 4 ohm 1x15.
