    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?

    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.
    Many people seem to end up defining their entire life by the work that they keep. They have no hobbies, are part of no meaningful social groups, and have few friends outside of work. After enough time spent like this, they seem to get to a mental place where they are incapable of escaping. After several decades in captivity, trying to release an animal back into the wild usually doesn't end all that well for the animal. It's very sad. GuitarStv
