  1. Hi out there, I have just got hold of a TC RH450 amp, and I want to run 2 GK 8ohm cabs but don’t know how to link them as there is only 1 out of the head, and in only on the cabs....help

    I wouldn't use a splitter cable if the Cabs have internal crossovers. I seem to remember that causing a problem.
    I would just wire in a parallel jack on one of the Cabs.

    I can't imagine a company like GK only providing one jack on an 8Ω cab. If there are two, you can use one as a parallel out connection to the other one.

  5. thanks for response folks, on both cabs rear I have a speakon and jack connection both marked "full range" so presume they are inputs only,
     
  6. Will this connect give me 4 ohms?

    You can use them both, obviously you'll require a cable that is either jack>jack or jack>speakon as you'll be using both connectors on the 'first' cab.

    Those speaker connections are not one way. They’ll allow current to flow either in or out, so you’re good.
