Which cab for Cerwin Vega amp

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Britsie, Mar 9, 2005.


  1. I recently bought a Cerwin Vega BG250 amplifier and an 18” cabinet with a broken speaker (I knew this at the time of purchase). My plan is, in a first phase to hook up the amp to a 4x10 cabinet and later add the old cabinet with a new 18” speaker. On the back of the amp is written: “4ohm minimum” and “Maximum Total Power consumption 600W”.
    My questions are: 1)What do you think of this plan; 2)How much power must the 4x10 and the new 18” speaker be minimum? (I already worked out that cabinet and speaker should be 8ohm each :) )
