I've seen people with 4 cabs running, is that just the thing how they only run 2 and the others are there to look cool or are they actually running 4 from the one head?
If you can run 4 cabs from one head, how do i set up my head and cabs to do this?
I have an Ashton VP100H it has 3 speaker outputs, 8, 8, and 4 or 16ohms (i can't remember) and i have one Ashton cab that can only run at 8 ohms.

I can use my friends Marshall cabs (can run at 4 or 8ohms) to make the 4 up if i wanted. The reason i'm asking this is pretty much just to know how to do it so if i ever do it in the future i'll know how to.

need a stereo cab mate, but even then it may not handle 2 heads. I am considering the same but its best to get 2 2x12s. also you can position them in stereo.

u can get two cabs at 8 ohms, both going into the 8 ohm speaker outputs.

but just to be sure, check ur manual.

I'm pretty sure you read that wrong. He wants to know how to run more than 2 cabs off his head, not how to run 1 cab off of 2 heads.

I'm pretty sure you can just use a Y cable to "split" one input on the back of the head into 2, but I've never tried it and don't really see the point as there really isn't any. I could be completely wrong though haha

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

^splitting one input would give you iffy results. splitting would mess with the impedance, and i think 1/4 or 1/2 so be sure to know what the impedance is before u wire it up.

No man, that would change the resistance, not to mention a Y cable isn't the right gauge to handle that high of a wattage.

It's called daisy chaining. It's what happens when you see and input and an output jack on cabs.
