SVT Cl into different cabs

    Is it possible to hook an an 810 and a 115 together with an svt cl head. What I really want to do is have 2 115 cabs with the 810 laying side ways on top. Is this possible, i know there would then be 3 cabs so is that even possible? Thanks for your input.

    if your 115 is 4ohms then yes, it is possible

    As far as I know, the SVT-CL head cannot run more than 2 cabs at once. As always, be careful of the combined impedance!

    after thinking about it, IF the 810 has a daisy-out (like my 410HLF), its from my understanding that you can run the 810 and the 115 off the 810. Then you have one more out put from the head to any 8ohm cab. Therefore running your SVT at 2ohms.

    Make sense?

    Possible, but not worthwhile. A 115 can't even keep up with a 410. By the same token two 115s won't keep up with an 810. If an 810 isn't loud enough you need to add another 810. I can't imagine an 810 not being loud enough, but to each their own.

    This is incorrect.

    The SVT-CL head can operate at 4 ohms or 2 ohms. One 810 = 4 ohms. Two 810 cabs = 2 ohms.

    You could run an SVT-CL with one 810 and two 15 cabs on the 2 ohm setting. I doubt it'd be worthwhile to do, though.

    I totally agree with this. Then again, I would since I learned most of what I know about the subject from you ;)

    Jmelh, it's possible to hook up two 8 ohm 115's and a 4 ohm 810 to an SVT tuber. Daisy chain the two 115's into one input, the 810 into the other, and hit the 2 ohm switch. But really, it's not a great idea to run both from the same head because of the volume imbalance Bill speaks of. You want a badass SVT rig that'll have audience members puking up blood, get two 810's.

    For ease of transport, I've been using two SVT 115 cabs with my SVT-CL of late. I can't imagine adding an 810 to that.

    As already stated, it is possible to do, but not a good idea in any way. What you'll end up with is a blown 15" cab, and nothing else. Waste of time and effort.

    Any amp can run as many cabinets as you want as long as the total impedance doesn't fall below the amps minimum impedance for SS and matches the selected impedance tap for a tube amp.
