Guitar cab ohm question

Post by d-bolan » Mon Nov 05, 2007 11:54 am

I have a 2x12 cab that I'm selling on craigslist and I need to find out how many ohms it's running at. I bought the cab empty and had my tech guy back east put 2-25w greenbacks in it. It has one jack. Each speaker says 8 ohms on the back. I know that he wired them parallel. If the answer is simple based on this information, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise I can just take it to a place and find out.

Thanks,
Dan

You can plug in a speaker cable and measure the resistance with an ohm-meter. Also, you can put a 9-V battery across it and see if your speakers are in phase.
