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.

If your Amp is rated for 2 - 16 ohms you should be ok, because you would not be going bellow the 2 ohms--

Here is a website I found. I was going to give you all the calculations but this site does it alot better. They are decribing a car system, but it is still the same..
