I have a Carvin V3 with an Avatar 2x12 with Vintage 30s wired in stereo. Both speakers are 8 ohms. Since it's wired in stereo, I have both speakers running into my amp at the same time (one input per speaker). So should I set my amp to 4 ohms? I've been running it on 8, but a lightbulb appeared...
I've only ever seen these cabs with 16 ohm speakers in there but it seems just as doable with 4 ohm speakers right? I was thinking of making my cab with multiple inputs instead of a switch (with clear labels) as well as an out to chain another cab to it for multiple options (I'm a freak like...
I have a fender hot rod deluxe combo amp that I want to turn into a head to use with my port city music 2x12 cabinet.
My issue is that the cabinet is a 4 ohm enclosure(two 8 ohm speakers wired in parallel.) And the amp has an 8 ohm output.
According to page 7 of the manual...
Well.. being the Gasser that I am, I couldn't help but try hooking my fender hotrod deluxe up to my supersonic, strictly using the amp section of the deluxe, and connecting ONLY the v30 in my supersonic.. this changed my tone DRAMATICALLY, forcing me to use CAPSLOCK, and has made me decide to...
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...
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...
1 week ago I bought a Valbee to mod it til I like what it looks like.
I installed a speaker out to use it with a 4x12" connected instead of this lil 6,5" speaker to let the beast come alive :D
But I kept the lil speaker for use in my living room. ;)
Take a look what I did ;)
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?
Let me rephrase my question.
I currently have a 4x12 cabinet: 4 16ohm speakers. It is wired stereo 8ohms per side or mono 4ohms.
I am thinking about buying a Crate Power Block for practices at home. The problem is that the Power Block is wired for 8ohms mono and 4ohms stereo.
I want the...
I have 2 Mesa cabs that I really like but they are lacking some punch.
The cabs are:
-1x12 1/2 back widebody stock C90 speaker
-1x12 3/4 back widebody stock C90 speaker
I would like to change these speakers to something that can get a smooth lead tone, but some additional punch. I need 8...
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...
Ok, so I finally have the opportunity to have a pair of custom 2x12 cabs built. Now I'm trying to decide on the correction ohmages on the speakers I want to buy. I need help...I think.
I plan to have each cab wired for both mono and stereo operation so that I can run either one cab in stereo...
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 ?
I don't know much about them other than they're used to allow you to run the master volume, gains, what have you on your amp to get that great tube tone that requires lots of volume....but then allows you to listen to it at bedroom or small club levels.
Am I on the right lines with...
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.
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...
Has anybody here played a Crate BV412RVB or SVB with 4 vintage 30's in it, or the Genz Benz G-Glex 4x12?
I'm thinking about getting one or the other.
I played a Marshall 1960a the other day and I disliked the G12t-75 speakers. Are vintage 30's more smooth sounding that those?
