Hey guys,

how safe is it to run 2 marshal heads (DSl and a TSL) into the same cabinet (1960A)?

would i need to change the impedance selected on the back?

Any other issues to worry about?

I think you'd need an A/B box to be able to do that, you couldn't run them both directly into it.

I was thinking the same thing.

Don't do that!
If you A/Bed them they would break, don't do it. You need a special switch which will take the load of the heads ... like the tonebone or something, it's around £200/$300.

This thread is dirty. "2 heads, 1 cab", "take the load of the head"

Anyway, don't run them both in and don't use an A/B box because that would be bad for the heads. There probably is a way to do it but I don't know what it is. Hehe "tonebone"!

I thought 1960A cabs were stereo? Do you see this at the back?

If so, then switch it to stereo, plug in both heads at 8 Ohms and rock on!

No!

1 head, 1 cab, you can't run 2 heads simultaneously - allow yourself 50% headroom so at least a 150w cab for a 100w amp.

You'll need this to run two heads safely into one cab. The Radial Headbone VT.

This thread is full of fail.....

You can ABY this up a notch....

The whirlwind switcher will allow this....the Radial headbone will allow this.....and to those saying you can't combine the two heads *cough steven seagull cough*, you CAN mix them...that is what the Y feature is all about....
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

cough, he meant without the $250 pedal, cough.
mentioned a couple of times before you posted in this full of fail thread.
in addition to the stereo option, if that's what the op was asking.


he didn't want the guy to run a head without carrying the load.

The 1960A is 300W (GT75 speakers), which would allow you to use 2 heads on it in stereo.

+1

I did it all the time with my old 1960b cab and it was perfectly fine. 120 watt head on 2 speakers 100 watt head on the other two.. Sounded fine as well
