Hi, I recently bought a 2x12 to put on top(or bottom) of my 4x12 Mesa Boogie cabinet

Call me a newbie, but how do you plug them in, to conenct them? Is there any specific jack, I dont know anything about ohms or variances or whatever.

Also, should 2x12 go on top or bottom?

Please PM me with HELPFUL advice, if you want to flame me, just do it here. Heh

Thanks so much

not trying to be an elitist dick, but it might be better to post this in guitar gear and accessories. im not sure, but i think the 2x12 goes on top.

How about giving us the exact references of your cabs and your amp ?

Oh, and one important WARNING: Use special speaker jacks to connect your cabinets, NOT instrument jacks, they can simply catch FIRE.

ok,
so the dual rec manual says it's got
1 16 ohm output
1 8 ohm output
2 4 ohm outputs

There's a pretty thorough speaker wiring guide.

Can you confirm this is what you got on the back of the 2x12 cab?

Seriously? So only speaker cables, then. Wow thanks! That probably saved me burning/generally wrecking the next amp I get.

Ok I think we're all good now. We're on the same page, and I'm back to trying to get with his sister.

Yes those are both what they look like, when I take the little plugs out of them.

Taken straight out of the Dual Rectum manual



You need 2 speaker cables

- 1 that goes from one 4 ohms output of your amp to the 8 ohms input of the 2x12 cab

- 1 that goes from the other 4 ohms output of your amp to the 8 ohms in of the 4x12 cab.
