Ok mens, i have 2 cabs. I have a head that will mono bridge, which means i can only hook one cab up. What if i hook one cable from the head to the cab, then one cable from the cab to the other cab. will this work? i don't understand what this does to the ohm ratings. throw me a fricken bone

It should wire them in parallel which, if the cabs are the same ohm rating, halves the resistance so two 8ohm cabs will be 4 ohms

If the cabs are 8ohms, you can wire them in series and plug into your 16ohm output, or wire them in parallel, and go to your 4ohm output.

Get a little series box.

When daisy chaining, cabs generally go in parallel.

once again though, this doesn't mean anything to me. daisy chaining is like what i described in my first post?
yes and what parallel means is that all the positives are connected in a chain and the negatives the same where series alternates its confusing but daisy chaining is usually parallel

Basically, yes. Daisy chaining is when you plug one cab into another. On every cab I have ever heard of it connects them in series, which is the same as plugging them into the two parallel speaker outputs on the back of your Eden.
