Would this set up work properly and be adequately powered?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by myke.nytemare, Jan 5, 2007.

  1. I have a Peavey Classic 400 and would like to connect it to a Peavey 210 TVX cab (4-ohm, 175 Watts RMS) and a Peavey 115 BVX (4 ohm, 400 Watt RMS). Will each speaker receive 200 watts at 4 ohms (and work allright if I dont push it).

    I also want this setup so I can just use the 115BVX when I dotn want to carry as much to a gig.

    Check the FAQ at the top of this forum to get a better understand of things, but to start with, two 4 ohms cabs results in a 2 ohm load on the amp.

    To answer your question - No, the Peavey Classic 400 cannot operate safely at 2 ohms. When in doubt, always check the back of the head. It will always say what the minimum impedance is.
  4. What if I found an 8ohm 210 and an 8ohm 115, they would operate at 4 ohms when in parallel, right?
  5. yup

    You can also have a series cable made that will allow you to run the two 4 ohm cabs at a 8 ohm load. You can check with Pro Cables and sound, I believe they have a stock cable for that purpose or with Bayou Cables to make one for you.

  8. Ok..one more question. What if I had a 200 Watt RMS/400 Program cabinet and used the Peavey Classic 400 to power it.

    As long as I didnt have the amp very loud all the time, the speakers/cab would likely not be damaged, right? I mean, the Peavey probaby outputs 350 very clean watts when cranked up, so when operated at lesser volumes, it should not blow the speakers in a 200W RMS cab?!?!
