    Default Cabinet impedence question

    Check this pic of the back of a meas 2x12:

    If I was using an 8ohm connection to this 2x12, what kind of cab could I run thru parralleled out?
    Would there be enough power to run a 4x12? or only a 2x12?
    Or would I have to use 16ohms?


    So in theory could I run
    (2) 2x12's running to (2) 4x12's? from my Mesa Boogie Mark IV?
    I played the tele-gib. 'nuff said.

    Default Re: Cabinet impedence question

    Since that cabinet connector appears to be hardwired in parallel,
    if you connect an additional cab of X ohm's, the amp will see Y ohms:

    X --- Y
    16 ... 5.33
    8 ... 4
    4 ... 1.33

    So, choose what your amp can handle, accordingly.
