When it's the same one it's for a back up usually. If they're different then the user is either "A/Bing", IE using each amp as a separate channel, or they're run in stereo to compliment each other.

Like the guy said, there's also stompboxes that allow you to plug the two heads in each an input, then select which one to go to the output into the cab with the footswitch if you're intent on using the same cab for both.

I run a Carvin Legacy and Mesa-Dual Rec in my live rig. I either run both at once or Carvin for clean/Mesa for teh metalz. It really opens up my sound.

no. adding cabs doesn't make you louder.

All adding a cab will do is disperse the sound more, which will give you a 'fuller' sound, but no louder.
If you have multiple heads, you have two options:

1) Get a seperate cab for each head and use an A/B/Y box to switch between them,
2) Switch between two heads via one cab. This is a bit more tricky.

If you choose option 2, you either need to buy a box that allows you to switch between two heads, or use one at a time and switch them manually when you want to change them (like I do at the moment).

Of course adding cabs gives you more volume, i mean loudness. You get an extra 3db from just stacking to cabs, putting them in a corner etc. 4 cabs will sound much louder then two. As will an 8x10 taking 600 watts compared to a 4x10 taking 1000, in reason of course.

It doesn't actually increase the volume though - remember that.

no? not really. there's a specific reason why your example doesn't work. 600 watts will not sound any louder than 1000 watts because the human ear is incapable of hearing all of the audible frequencies produced by a 600 or 1000 watt amp. That's why a 100w tube amp and 300w tube amp don't have a huge volume difference. The difference is in headroom.


And the 3db number is pretty much a myth. You don't gain decibels, you gain audible frequencies. It might sound louder, but there is no additional volume.

okay. as long as we're on the same page. perceived loudness and loudness aren't the same.

it's still sound pressure. It "is" louder and a measurable quantity, you can get a cheap SPL meter at Radio Shack and see it for yourself. It's more surface area, being driven by the same amount of wattage, the same way a 12" speaker is louder than a 3" speaker driven by the same wattage. it's moving more air, and increasing SPL.
