    My other question is that with a mono (SWR350) head and two 8 ohm cabinets, is the power rating of the amp (350 watts @ 4 ohms) per cabinet or in total? I mean is each cab getting 350 watts or is 350 watts the total of the two cabinets?
     
  2. 350 watts is the total output at 4 ohms.

    Perhaps it's your user name? :confused: I don't know. It might put some people off. I'm assuming it's meant to be humorous. But it's a P.C. world. B.T.W I don't get alot of responses to my threads either, maybe because I'm fairly new here. It's cool though.

    Yeah, that user name threw me off also. The fact remains that I knew nothing about that particular SWR model.

    I thought I was the biggest thread-killer on TalkBass!

    Unless your username is over-the-top, super-duper offensive, I don't think that's the problem. FWIW, I don't think "bassplayajew" is offensive at all, but some people 'round here seem to be a lot like Trojan Ultra condoms -- extra sensitive!

    Yeah, I personally don't think it's offensive either. But as ebozzz said I think it just might through people off.

    LOL

    Maybe Paul should add a "Number of Threads Killed" counter along with our post count number?

    It did for me a little. I'm not the "Trojan Ultra" man either! :D Check this out. Shortly after the September 11th incident, I posted a thread asking if it would be nice if conflicts could be solve by cutting heads. Cutting heads in the musical sense not actually cutting off someone's head mind you. Well, let's just say that my thread was totally misunderstood and I actually offended some members.

    I never intended to do such a thing but it happened. TalkBass has a lot of members from other regions of the world and from all walks of life. Someone in Israel or of Jewish ancestry may actually be turned off by your user ID. I don't personally find it offensive but I learned all too well in my "Wouldn't it be nice if....." thread that something you feel is harmless can easily be misinterpreted.

    SRG,

    That's probably what quite a few people thought about me after that thread. I got beat up pretty bad! In the thread itself, PMs and emails. They came at me from all angles. Now here you are bringing back all of those memories! :D ;)

    350 @ 4 ohms

    Two 8 ohm cabinets in parallel, totalling 4 ohms load.

    350 / 2 = 175 watts per cabinet.

    Is that the answer you were looking for?

    thanks to all those who answered my amp question. To those who said stuff about my user name, I understand since theres no voice or facial expression to judge by so y'all just assume that everyones being serious and stuff but you know, I'm just like everyone else here wanting to enjoy the bassist community. I'm going to change my name but its just...whatever.

    Hey bpj-don't worry about your user name! Doesn't bother me. If they can't loosen up, well, farck 'em! One of my best bass playing friends is Jewish and when we talk, he tells me all the latest Jewish jokes! He's a really funny guy. Then, I tell him a few Gentile jokes!

    I wouldn't change the name (I thought it was funny and harmless).....if someone is going to be "upset" by it then odds are something in your posts will set them off too. I've run across some posts on this forum that have been pretty closed minded and inflamatory........idiots are idiots and they'll find any excuse to be critical......WHO CARES:p

    Shoot, I was totally unaware that Jews even played basses. Live and learn, eh?
