ohm load

    I'm considering getting an extension cabinet for my combo amp. The manual says "minimum total impedance is 16 ohms". Most cabs I'm looking at online are rated at 8 ohms. The native amp speaker is 16 ohms. So, does that mean I can add a cabinet that is 8 ohms or does the cab have to be 16 or...

    Well, I have been searching for the answer to this question for a few days now. I looked through many of the threads already posted and searched but I couldn't find the answer here. So, sorry If this question has already been asked. I saw on this guitargeek website that steve vai basically uses...

    Probably addressed once upon a time, but here's my scenario: I just got a crate powerblock that I'm going to use for my POD into a 212 cab. The powerblock requires 8ohms, and I haven't picked up speakers for my cab yet. Which would be better, 2 4 ohm speakers wired in parallel or 2 16 ohm...

    Hey guys I must say this has made my tone much better. The crate gx1200h is a piece of crap but it isn't that bad if you work with the knobs a bit. A lot of people say "oh crate... garbage" but i'd say its got a better distortion "grain" or whatever you might call it than most other cheap amps...

    Just wondering what the "slave out" on my amp is for? I realize I can send this output to another amp, but just wondering why I would want to do this? Does this give you more power or a different sound? Thx Kev

    Ok guys I have a boss gt-pro for my tone right now, i'm running through a solid state studio amp (yamaha A100a) I was wondering if i should get a jsx or a legacy head amp. Also i have a mesa single 12in so i figure I don't need a cab. I've heard great things from the legacy but I've heard if you...

    I have a Carvin SX200 and I'm looking to put different speakers in it... They sound good on the clean channel, but when I play distortion, it makes a crackling sound... any one have a good suggestion? Thanks, Shane

    hi, all. a simple question here, when connecting speakers in series or parallel does it change the actual tone or sound of the speakers/amp? or is it just simply of the Ohms sake? cheers mike

    if i bought the combo legacy could i later add on an extension cabinet to make it a half or full stack?

    My amp has a selector for 4,8,16 ohm settings for different cabs. I use a old 2x12 hughes & kettner(atax) cab, running at 4 ohms.My question is, if I had that same cab and it was runnung at 8 ohms, would that change the tone of the amp?? I always wondered if running the output transformer at...

    I will be picking up a Johnson JM250 half-stack tomorrow. Now, I'm pretty sure that the 4X12 cab is 4 ohm. I also want to use the cab to run two other heads I have (at different times of course). One of the heads is a Carvin X100B, and fortunately, that has a switch that you can set to 4 ohm (so...

    I get my JSX head for Xmas and I was wondering what do the ohms switches do? The head can either be 4,8, or 16 ohms mono, or 8 stereo or something. It says when it does this the tubes go to 6l6's or something. Does this mean if i lower the ohms the amp runs at a lower wattage ?

    The rythm guitar player in my band just bought a really nice new amp. It's a Traynor Custom Valve 50BLUE - 50w / 12 inch - All Tube amp. http://www.yorkville.com/products.asp?type=32&cat=18&id=318 I have an old super reverb and it is 45 watts at 2 ohms. 4 x 10" 8 ohm speakers comes out at...

    I was wondering if anyone would know what to do with a Marshall 1960B 4x12 16 ohm cabinet to bring the ohm rating down. I am running a Behringer LX1200 which is [email protected] ohms into that cabinet. I'm not getting the volume I want due to the high cabinet ohms. Anyone know how to rewire or have...

    Okay, this could be a relatively easy electrical question, but I'm not about to blow an amp or a speaker based upon my complete lack of electrical knowledge. I've got a 2x12 cabinet with two 16 ohm speakers wired in parallel, making an 8 ohm cab. There are 2 speaker jacks on the back, connected...

    I had the chance to play the Spider II today and the thing just screamed. I loved the lead tone I got out of it, and the clean tone was good, but lacked just a little aroma. I know a lot of people here judge tone from Vai and Satch, but this Spider II really kicked booty. I love the...

    I've been running a rack system for a while now, but I have been pondering the idea of going back to a head. However, I want the best of both worlds. The AVT150H & the Spider II HD heads look appealing because they both have 4 channels, 150W, & a solid stage power section (which I prefer)...
