Hey. I know there are tons of resources online…but I just want to make sure.


I have a 2x10 with 2 8ohm speakers. at the moment it is set up with 3 inputs…each speakers separately for 8 ohms each (one speaker at a time…i know, its weird), and then one input for both speakers and a 16 ohm load.

how do i wire this cab for use with a BF Bandmaster (4 ohm)?

thanks!

If I'm correctly understanding the cab configuration as you describe it, I'd wire the speakers in parallel (2x 8 ohm speakers in parallel yields 4 ohms) to the input that currently has the speakers wired in series for a 16 ohm load.

Yup for 8ohm speakers... for parallel 4ohms, two leads between the speakers positive to positive, negative to negative.

If your cab is currently wired series for 16ohms there will be just one wire between the speakers positive to negative......
