Hey all,

I got a question, if i put the ohm selector on 4ohm (amp) and i hook up 2 4ohm cabs is that ok or do i have to put the ohm selector on 8ohm cause 2 outputs of amp running at 4ohm than?

I suppose that would depend on the amp.

Are the output jacks parallel?

If the cabs are in series you set for 8 ohms, if they are running parallel you can't do it. There is no case where 2 4 ohm cabs = 4 ohms.

it's paralleled says the amp

What amp exactly are we discussing?

What cabs are you running? I know some Marshalls have a mono 4ohm and 16ohm input.

There is a difference between "paralleled output" and stereo. Paralleled output means that if you hook up two 8 ohm cabs then the result will be 4 ohms. Stereo means that if you hook up two 8 ohm cabs then the result is an 8 ohm load for each of the stereo channels.

Yes, I believe we all know this, but given the limited information, questions needed to be asked.

It's not going to work, you can't use 2 4-ohm cabs.

amp set to 4-ohms = 1 4-ohm cab or 2 8-ohm cabs
amp set to 8-ohms = 1 8-ohm cab or 2 16-ohm cabs

Sorry, I can see how you would think that my post was a response to you. It was only to the OP. I saw you ask him about the parallel outputs and that affected how I responded. But I didn't intend my post to look like I was informing you of anything you didn't already know.
