Originally posted by LordathestringsSo, the lower impedance speaker cabinet will draw more current than the higher impedance cabinet. SincePower = Voltage X Current, and the voltage is the same for both cabinets, most of the power will go to the lower impedance cabinet. In the case of a 4 Ohm cab and an 8 Ohm cab, the 4 Ohm cab will get twice as much power as the 8 Ohm cab (same Voltage; twice as much Current). If your amp is putting out 300 Watts, the 4 Ohm cab gets 200 Watts, and the 8 Ohm cab gets 100 Watts. [u]Keep this in mind if your amp is capable of providing more than 1 1/2 times the rating of your 4 Ohm cab[/u]!

Last night I dug out my talkbox (for the extra speaker cables I keep with it) and tried plugging the both in. It worked, but I definately noticed my 4 ohm cab was louder. My amp only puts out 600 some odd watts at 2 ohms (bearing in mind the Sunn put out 1200 watts at that same impedance), so I'm not worried about overloading my 4 ohm cab. I'm woried about getting evicted.

Thanks!
