: I Currently have an Eden WT-300 Traveler head (4 ohms) and an old (but kick ass) 8 Ohm Trace 4x10 Cabinet. I have found a 2x10 to go on top of that and it is ALSO 8 ohms. I get very confused on the OHM issue. What kind of problems am I looking at. And Any suggestions on how to get around them.
: PS ..I WOULD KILL TO KNOW IF ANYBODY HASAN OLD TRACE ELLIOT QUATRA VALVE HEAD (ANY MODEL) FOR SALE
Correct me if I'm wrong here but as both cabinets will be 4 ohms they will get equal amount of power into both of them and as one cabinet has twice as many speakers won't the other cabinet's speakers have to move twice as hard.
To make my point more understandable. Here's an example.
Lets feed 200 watts to the cabinets.
100W into the 4x10" - one speaker will get 25W
100W into the 2x10" - one speaker will get 50W
When the 2x10" is at the maximum power it can handle, the 4x10" will be only using half of its capabilities. This way you won't get any more power out.
Something to think about,
