I'm just getting ready to build a couple of 2x12 cabinets that I want to run in stereo out of my power amp that is powering my Eleven Rack. I am having a bit of trouble wrapping my head around the impedance of the cabinet compared to the power amp.

I understand that if I put in 8 ohm speakers in the cabinet and wire them in series I have a 16 ohm cabinet, and if I run them in parallel I would have a 4 ohm cabinet. But when it comes to the power amp, if I run two 16 ohm cabinets in stereo, should I be looking at the wattage specs for the 16 ohm per channel or the 8 ohm per channel? From what I was reading somewhere if you run two cabinets in stereo it halves the ohms or something. It just didn't make sense, so I thought I'd try and see if I could get a more concrete answer.

And for example's sake, lets say the power amp is a Rocktron Velocity 300 and the cabinets are loaded with 2 V30's @ 60W apiece.

Thanks in advance for the clarification. Hopefully I phrased my question in a way that is understandable.

if it is a true stereo amp that means each side/section is a separate amp. So you would use the 16 ohms setting for each side of the amp.

If you give exact details on what Power amp you're using, and maybe the speakers that you plan on using too, then I think people can help you.

Most likely the Rocktron Velocity 300 and one of each of the Eminence Cannabis Rex and Screamin Eagle in each cabinet.
