- "If your cab has a higher rating than what your head is set to, you're okay.
- It's when your cab has a lower rating than your head is set to which means you'll blow your OT."
Also, here's an easy formula to remember if you are connecting more than one cab:
Multiply the two cabs ohms, add the two cabs ohms, the divide the values:
X x Y = Z1
X + Y = Z2
Z1 / Z2 = answer
Cab 1 is 16 ohms
Cab 2 is 8 ohms
16 ohms x 8 ohms = 128
16 ohms + 8 ohms = 24
128 / 24 = 5.33333 ohms
This is my exact dilemma although my values are different. If I end up with ~2.7 ohms when connecting both cabs to my SS bass head, and it auto switches between 2/4/8 ohms, I'll be okay since it'll auto-switch to 2 ohms?
Or is this not a good idea?
