    Okay, I know that's a lame thread title, but hey, you're here now, right?

    For all you techies out there:

    I have a 2x10/4 ohm cab, and a 4x10/8 ohm cab.

    If I run them together, how many ohms am I running?

    Thanks!

    2.67 ohms

    The best way to run a 210 and 410 together would be for the 210 to be 8ohm and the 410 4ohm.

    Others might not be so kind with their answer referring you to the FAQ's
     
  3. too bad it isn't the other way around, from how I understand it, it would be better for the 2x10 to be 8, and the 4x10 to be 4, so that the amount of power running into each speaker is roughly the same.

    FWIW, that's a horrible match between 2 cabs. As mentioned above, they should be the other way 'round. I'd get rid of something, and re-think the whole mess. Seriously.
