seeing as my last thread broke itself, here we go again


i know nothing about electronics, and just am just wondering if a get a 4x12 cab thats 16 ohms and disconnect 2 of the speakers does it become an 8 ohm cab, i have an 8 ohm hotplate for my 2x12 at the moment but am selling up and thinking of getting a 4x12, but also dont want to render my hotplate useless.


thank you

If you're using an attenuator it doesn't matter how many ohms the cab is. The hotplate just needs to match up to the amp, the cab is irrelevant.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

to answer your question though, most of the time, no... you can't just remove 2 of the speakers unless the speakers are all 4 ohms and they are wired in series. Most of the time they are wired parallel with 16 ohm speakers when they are a 16 ohm cab.

why would you get rid of a 212 for a 412? they will sounds almost* identical, one just is harder to move around
