: If I'm reading the original post right, I think this Carvin head actually
: has a two separate amps putting out 250 watts each at 4 ohms per side..
: My Eden WT-800 is like this, 400W + 400W @4ohms....If you run 8 ohm
: loads (speakers) on a amplifier rated for 4 ohms (in this case 2 separate
: amplifiers) the Amps are not operating at rated output (in watts), and
: therefore not as efficiently, probably at about HALF the claimed amount
: of watts...Maybe some of the more technical list members can clear
: this up, or as I suggested, Carvin has a help line that you can call
: for more info....Still, I don't think the distortion problem rests
: solely with the speakers themselves...
He said "2 4x10 8 ohmes each". Does he mean each amp has 2 cabs on it or does he mean that his 2 cabs each have 8 ohms.
That's where we're getting confused.
