randall v2 ohm ?
« on: December 29, 2013, 12:48:27 PM »
I have used my Randall v2 on many different cabs ,but yesterday I put it on a 6505. it had never sounded better, when I was done I noticed that the 6505 cab was 16 ohm. my question is ,if I continue to use this cab do I run a risk of damaging my amp?

No risk of damaging the amp but you will not get the same amount of volume or headroom when running at 8 ohms or especially at 4 ohms.  4 ohms is 400w, 8 is 280w and 16 is somewhere around half of that.

Still giggable but if it were me and I really liked the sound of a speaker or cabinet that was 16 ohms with the the V2, I would rewire it to 4 ohms to get the full power and headroom (deeper tighter lows, louder volume potential).

I second that notion. Rewiring to 4 ohms would definitely be the way to go.
