    I know how to match heads with cabinets and understand that running two 8 ohm cabinets parallel will produce a 4 ohm impedance etc.

    My question is, if I have an amp with a single speakon out, and two 8 ohm cabinets(identical) with one speakon and one 1/4 inch input a piece, how do I physically run them in parallel?

    also, out of curiosity, if each cab only had ONE 1/4 input and nothing else, how to run in parallel?
  3. just use a 1/4 to 1/4 speaker cable run from one cab to the other and you're good to go.

    Otherwise, you'd have to get a splitter cable if you've only one speaker out from your amp and your cabs have only one amp in jack.

    Assuming the speakon and 1/4 are wired in parallel in the cab, speakon from amp to cab "a," 1/4 from cab "a" to cab "b." Could also be 1/4 from cab "a" to speakon on cab "b" if you have one of those cables.
