So my favorite old cabinet finally died, and as it will be a while to find a replacement speaker, I figured I'd like to try something i've always wanted. I really love the sound of the old ampeg 4x10/8x10s, but I need a more portable/lightweight rig. (lots of narrow stairways) My thought is to use 2 of these 8 ohm 200 watt Ampeg SVT-210AVs in place of a 4x10, as each on its own is very easy to move. Now we arrive at the problem. My current gigging amp is an A.M.P. BH-420 (some info here: AMP) which outputs 200 watts into 8 ohms and 400 watts into 4 ohms. These ampeg cabinets only handle 200 watts each, and if I run a cable from the amp to each it would work out to 4 ohms so 400 watts. I like to run the amp somewhat hot, volume all the way up and add gain to get the appropriate stage volume (the gain is pretty much never above 1/4 of the way up) and I would expect this would blow up these cabinets. Is there a way to rig up these cabinets in such a way that they would be 8 ohms to my amp and therefore only receive 200 watts of power? The ampeg cabinets list something about each having an in and an out jack to be run in series instead of parallel but not sure if that would help? http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ampeg-SVT-210AV-Micro-Classic-Bass-Cabinet-105324420-i1447507.gc Not sure if there is any hope anyways as I somehow managed to blow up my 8 ohm speaker that was rated for 400 watts, even though the amp should have only been giving it 200 watts at 8 ohms. Thanks for your time.
