Following on from my thread about re-wiring my 3x12 to allow me to use the whole cab in mono or any speaker individually (which works like a charm btw), I've discovered that yes indeed, the G12H100 is the root cause of the dull tone. In fact it sounds so bad that it makes my 5153 sound like one of those shitty no brand practice amps you get with your first guitar. So, it's coming out and being replaced.
What I'm planning to do is replace it with another V30, but I'm wondering if it'd be a good idea to wire in a resistor too so I can do series/parallel wiring like a 4x12. Nick (E Lucevan Le Stelle) pointed out with my current wiring (2 16ohm V30's parallel wired, then wired in series to an 8ohm G12H100) the 8ohm speaker is getting twice the power of the 16ohm speakers. In theory sticking a 16ohm resistor across a 16ohm speaker to replace the 8ohm one should balance out the power over all my speakers.
So, is this a smart idea or a dumb one? Plus, any suggestions on a spec of resistor to use?
Not a good idea because it would have to be rated for 70+ watts and the Ohms in speakers are not inductance they are impedance which reacts differently in an amp circuit.
