Using two cabs with my guitar amp- which outputs should I use?
posted by gally99 to Grab Bag (7 answers total)
I have a Peavey Butcher. Speaker outs each have two labels:
1: single 16 ohm or first 16 ohm
2: single 8 ohm or second 16 ohm
3. single 4 ohm or third 16 ohm
4. no single cab or fourth 16 ohm
I usually get by fine with a single 8 ohm 4x12, but I'd like to play around with my other cabs. In the manual for the head, under connecting multiple speaker enclosures, it basically says 'if you're using cabs that aren't 16 ohm then there's too many combinations, you do the math'.
So, if I want to use two 8 ohm cabs, which outputs do i use? What if i want to use an 8 and a 16?
I can always rewire my cabs to all be 16, but I'd rather not.
