Hello fellow Bass Players, This is my first post, so let me start by saying "hello". I've been reading posts on this site for a short while now, soaking up various information, and due to the fact that my job actually pays me to work and not spend my days searching on forums, I finally registered so that I could ask some questions that have plagued me for a short while now. Here are two that I am confused about.... My first question is about running an amp into multiple speakers. Okay, yes I've found a million posts on this subject, and I'm sure to be bombarded with the standard "dude, we discussed this", but I gotta be honest. Most of the replies get into so much detail that my head starts spinning before I get to the end of the thread and I just want to be sure I'm understanding the whole thing. So anyway, here goes... 1. ) Let's say I have the following: One amp, rated to have an output of 1200w bridged @ 4ohms, and 900w bridged @ 8ohms, and two 700w 8ohm 4x10 cabs. If I were to connect only one of the cabinets, I understand this means I would be running 900w (8ohms) into the speaker, and would be slightly overpowering the cabinet. Now if I were to run both cabinets "daisy-chained" together, I understand that I would be running 1200w (4 ohms) into both speakers because running two 8ohms cabs = 4ohms for the amp. Am I correct so far? Good. So my question is when running daisy-chained, will that be 1200w to each speaker, or 600w each; with the two 410's essentially being one 1400w 4ohm 8x10? In that case I would be slightly underpowering the cabinets, correct? This now brings me to my next question.... 2.) In my many searches, I always seem to run into threads about "underpowering your cabinet". While the whole underpowering thing makes sense, I can't help but wonder: How is it that one of the most popular Bass amp setups, the SVT-CL all tube head connected to the SVT 8x10 cabinet, works so well? The 8x10 cabinet is rated to handle up to 800w RMS, and the SVT-CL head is only rated to have an RMS output of 300w. This is supposedly "the sound" (as I read somewhere), but it just doesn't match up with the argument. Please explain this to me or even point me to the thread that can give me the answer to this. Your input is appreciated. Sorry for the long post. Been holding those in for a little while. Funny how hard it is to stay on track when your typing a post.....looking forward to hearing what y'all have to say.
