    Hi!
    Does anyone know is it possible to connect a 16ohms Marshall bass cabinet with Ampeg SVT 4 Pro head?

    What wattage can the 16ohm cab take? How many speakers is it? Is it two 16ohm speakers which actually means an 8ohm load, or is it a 1 speaker cab with 16ohms? And why is this in the bar and not in the backline section? Hahaha

    You can find the watts it sends (and other stuff) in the instruction manual here: http://www.ampeg.com/pdf/SVT4PRO_OM.pdf but it's important to know the watts the cab can take at 16ohm

    Assuming the Marshall can handle the wattage the Ampeg puts out then yes.

    It's a 4x12 Marshall bass cabinet. Read the manual 2 times already. :dopey:

    The cab is 400watts.

    400 watts at 16 ohms, it should be more than fine then, if it sends 350w at 8ohms, it will send considerably less at 16, so it will be perfectly safe.

    It'll be fine. Like pretty much every cab paired with a 4 Pro (unless you're running more than one 8x10) just watch the volume.

    Apparently, connecting 16ohms with this bass head is not recommended by Ampeg support. So I rented 2 different cabs for profiling.
