Looking for a box that connects 2 cabs in series...

I'm not sure if there's such a thing, but here's my situation.

I have an amp that has a 16 Ohm output and a bunch of 8 ohm cabs.

What I'm looking for is a box that I can plug the amp into and the cabs into where the two cabs are in series presenting an impedance of 16 ohms.

I imagine one could be wired up, but I'm not that talented. If you've ever run across something like this, I'd sure like to know.

Mesa used to make a series box, not sure if they still do. They're actually quite simple to build, just a small project box and three jacks. Jack #1 being the input and jacks 2 and 3 being the outputs, wire the + lug of jack 1 to the + lug of jack 2. (-) lug of jack 2 to + lug of jack 3, and (-) lug of jack 3 to the (-) lug of jack 1.

yep, just make sure to label which jack gets the amp signal (the "input") and which two jacks go to the cabs, as they're not interchangeable.

Or just get a series 'Y' cable, I've been told it is sometimes called a "triangle" cable.
