heres somthing ive wondered for a while.

say you have a 50 watt head and played it though a 1x12
then you played that same head through a 4x12

would it be louder with the 4x12 cab?

Yes, more speaker area means more air being moved. Sound is vibrations in the air so a 4x12" will be louder.

ok thank you, i ask because the bassist in my band needs to be louder (hes playing though a 1x15 right now) we have some more 10's and 15's lieing around and were going to make a cab with them in it but i wanted to make sure that it would indeed be louder

make sure there the same ohm aswell


Definitely make sure of that. And make sure the speakers wattage can handle how much wattage the amp is putting out

I have heard that you get about a 2 or 3 decibel (?my spelling sucks today) increase. It will definitely sound louder because of the air pushed as said.

by the same ohm^ he means that the total ohms of the new cab = the 1x15
and it will be fuller, louder, just dont expect a huge output difference.
