    I just got an aguilar GS 112NT to add to my existing GS 112 and am embarrassed to say I don't really know the best way to hook these up.
    I'll be powering them with an Eden WT-550 and have 1 speakon cable and 1 quarter inch cable. Any Suggestions?

    Not familiar with the amp, but if it has 2 speaker outputs, you could connect each cab from there, or amp to cab 1, and cab 1 to cab 2. Are there Speakon and 1/4" inputs/ outputs? If so, I'd use the Speakon cable from the amp, and the 1/4" cable from one cab to the other. Hope this helps.

    Always run separate cables from the head to multiple cabs if that's an option. When you daisy chain cabs the entire current load from the amp must travel through one cable; running parallel cables out of the amp spreads the load across both.

    Bill's advice should be moved into the FAQ (if it isn't already).

    Q. How to you connect multiple cabs to a head?

    A. Always run separate cables from the head to multiple cabs if that's an option. When you daisy chain cabs the entire current load from the amp must travel through one cable; running parallel cables out of the amp spreads the load across both.

    When you "gear-up" and move from one cab to 2, everyone asks this question.
