What impedance cabinet would i use with a Laney RBH800 300 Watt head unit?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by aabassist, Nov 4, 2002.


  1. Would i use a 4 Ohm or 8 Ohm cabinet?

    Also is it wise to use cabinets made by a different company than the head unit?
     
  2. Also i was wondering if anyone knows how many cabinets this head can output to. Does it have

    two, 4 Ohm Outputs?? or one, 4 ohm output?? any help appreciated

    You get the most power @ 4 ohm, so you want to use one 4 ohm cab or two 8 ohm cabs.


    It's perfectly fine to use different brands, most people do that.
     
  4. I was looking at a Peavey 115BVX 1x15" Cab, this is available as 4 Ohm and 8 Ohm for the same price. So i would buy the 4 Ohm version right??

    Would that be suitable for this head unit? (Laney RBH800)

    Also i was wondering about frequency response, do i have to check this??

    The Peavey is:
    Frequency response: 30 Hz to 3.5 kHz

    Would that be compatible with the RBH800??

    Thanks,

    If you are sure that you will not want to use a second cab in future get the 4Ohm version.

    If you're thinking of getting a second cab (e.g. 410) later and using it together with the 115 you should get the 8Ohm version.

    Don't worry about frequency response, you don't need it here.
