Subway D-800 Cab Count at 2ohms

Post by JK47-TheZealot » Sat Sep 17, 2016 3:18 pm

I apologize in advance if this is not the correct forum... Looking for advice on running 3 cabs with this bass head. I have the 1x15 and I am looking to another and possibly the 1x12 if its even possible. Total noob, never had a reason to hit a message board LOL

Three 8ohm cabs in parallel is 2.67ohm, so if we're talking about the matching Subway cabs you'll be fine. The amp only has two speaker outs, so you'll need to daisy chain two cabs together (the cabs have both an input and a parallel output for daisy chaining).
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.

Totally fine....just make sure the amp is set to the 2 ohm setting on the back panel. Thanks!

Hello

I was wondering how the setup worked? Did you put three cabinets together? I have two subway 112s and am thinking of buying a third, stacking them, and daisy chaining two of the cabinets.

How did it end up sounding? Plenty of headroom with the 2 ohm setting.

Thanks.
