    many many newbie questions.

    I use a SVT-VR head and this is the first time that i`m going to use two 8ohms cabs (2x10 and a 1x15). each cab has one speakon connection and 2 1/4 jacks wired parallel (which I have no idea how that works).

    can I use the only speakon output from the amplifier to connect one cab and also use one of the two 1/4 speaker outputs to connect the other cab? will it be bad for the amplifier?

    also, can the parallel 1/4 jacks in the cabs be used to daisy chain the cabinets?

    I have seen cabs that have two speakon connections. are those input/output?

    any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes it will be fine.

    Yes. That's why there are two.

    No. They are parallel inputs like the 1/4" jacks.

    You can either run two cables from the head to the two different cabs; or run one cable from the head to one cab, and the other cable from the first cab to the second (daisy chain). It will make zero difference either way you decide to do it.

    wow, super fast answer!
    thanks a lot powdered toast man!

    so 1/4 jacks wired parallel can be used as inputs or outputs?
