Stereo Head Questions

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Rick_no7, May 3, 2006.

  1. Hopefully I am about to recieve a Ampeg SVT400t, which is a stereo amp. I am new to heads and cabs so this is quite a complex input/output section to start with. I have the PDF File thanks to Jarreld Tiers.

    Ok, there is Amp A and Amp B, just to label them.

    Now, I know I will most likely Bi-amp my stack. Sending the highs to my 4x10 8ohm through Amp A, and the lows to my 1x15 8ohm through Amp B. For most applications I plan to run into in the near future this is fine.

    My question comes with this mono-bridge feature, and daisy chaining my cabs. When I bridge both amps, I get 400 watts and I can ONLY use an 8ohm set up with this bridge.

    If I mono-bridge my amp to get 400 watts, and send it to my 4x10, THEN I use the output on my 4x10 to daisy chain to my 1x15, is it taking 8 ohms? or will this make it 4ohms?


    This shows them daisy chaining the 2 cabs. I basically want to know if Daisy chaining is a way of getting 2 8ohm cabs past the 8ohm limit

    It'll be 4 ohms.

    Was mostly curiosity.
