i need 200w of speaker power for an amp im building.

if i wire 2 100w 8 ohm speakers in parralel it will give a 4 ohm load which is perfect.

but when done in paralel like this, is the power still 200w

thanks

Why would you post if you don't know what you're talking about?
Luckily for the TS, yes - if you add speakers in series or parallel, the total power handling is equal to the sum of the individual speakers power handling. HOWEVER you always should have a cabinet that's rated above the output of the amp - especially if it's tube.

Well most 4x12 guitarcabs are 260-300W anyway even though tube heads don't go over 120W.

Is that intended for me? If so i know that guitar cabs are between 260-300 was actually wondering if he was building a 200w head? Is it a Orange thunderverb clone?
