    Howdy Folks,

    My everyday rig is a DB751 with a pair of DB112 cabs. On large outdoor stages I been adding my 4 ohm DB410 to the mix. One thing I've noticed is that the DB410 way over powers the DB112's. I am wanting to switch the 410 for the 212 to match drivers as well as match output. To match power distribution with the 2 DB112's should I get a DB212 in 8 or 4 ohms. Or does it matter? I just don't want one overpowering the other.

  2. Your two current cabs are 8 Ohms? Then a 4 Ohm 212 would have even power distribution to each speaker.

    As long as the amp is stable with a 2Ω load.
     
  5. The DB 750 is.

    Yup, the 750 and 751 can hang at 2ohms no problem.
