: I use a Carvin bi-amp head which is 2x250 watts at 4ohm with 2 4x10 8 ohmes each(Eminance speakers)

>>>> You've got an "impedence mismatch" there, 8 ohm load (speakers) on
a 4 ohm amplifier...You're probably putting out about 50% of your
head's output rating by doing that...I'm not sure about which model
Carvin you've got there, but maybe you can bridge both sides of the
head and parallel the cabinets, for an overall 4 ohm rating??????
Carvin has a 1-800 tech line, give 'em a call, maybe they can
help...
-------------------------
Are you sure about that? Doesn't two 8 ohm cabs give an overall 4 ohm load for the amp?
