Resistance differnt
R1 X R2 / R1 + R2 = R total


I actually understood your first post :D I built the cabs my self so I know they are 8ohms each and my amp can handle down to 2ohms so I believe I am good to go.

Thanks for the info.

Here are other questions (if ya dont mind me askin'),

If I build a 4ohm cab would it be alright to run it in-line with an 8ohm cab (would give 2.66ohms) or should I run it off a different jack from the amp (may be even a second amp)?
Would the amp try to power the cab with lower resistance causing the higher resistant cab to blow?
If the cabs were in line would it make a difference if the 4ohm cab was before of after the 8ohms cab?

If you could recomend a good book or web site that deals with the resistance of speakers that would be good as well.
