  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    The cab that I just picked up with my head has 4 12" Celsetion G12K-85s, and I'm not sure what ohm setting to set the amp at? Is there a way to tell what ohms the speakers use?
  2. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    No longer for sale. Turns out these are from 1999, before production moved to China, so I'm going to hang onto them for now. Especially at this price. :D FS: pair of V30s, 16 ohms. In good condition; used but not abused. I bought them off another RTer years ago. Cones are stamped 444...

    I read often one wants 1000ohm or something like that for recording proper signal. But on Radial I read this about the J48 (which I have two of) "My guitar amplifier has an input impedance of 1-Mohm. The J48 has an input impedance of 220-kohm. Why would they be any difference? Traditionally a 1...

    Got a question. Is it possible to take a 412 cab that has 4 8ohm speakers, pull 2 and ad 2 16 ohm speakers? If so, how would one wire it? Or will that just fuck shit up?

    OK, so, I'm using a V2/Mode Four rig, but it's a pain in the ass to get to our practice space, which is furnished, with, among others, Marshall 1960A's. Now, as I'm sure many are aware, the Randall is rated at the following: 400 watts @ 2 ohms 400 watts @ 4 ohms 280 watts @ 8 ohms and no...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey everyone, wondering if you could help me out with this. I'm getting a new amp in a few weeks, a traynor ycs100h, and i was wondering if the ohms for the amp have to be the same as the cabinet. For example, the traynor has a 2 ohm channel and a 4 ohm channel, and the cabinet i want to get...
