Questions about the PPC108

Post by leeowensoas1 » Tue Jul 30, 2019 7:13 pm

Hey I know this cab says onto to use it with the micro heads, but anyone know why? Especially if I had, say, 2 of them, or hooked them up to a 1 watt tube amp, is that gonna pose any risk?

Also it would appear older editions had 2 parallel jacks, and new ones just have one. Anybody know why? I want to be able to run 2 of the small ppcs as a full stack with my micro terror, but to my understanding daisy chaining these would sum to 4 ohms, and the speaker out needs a minimum of 8. How do people do this?

I’m only guessing, but if the cab is only 8 ohms and the amp can only take a minimum 8 ohms they probably went to one jack to prevent people from daisy chaining and damaging the amp. Don’t see any risk hooking up to a 1 watt tube amp.

You could run two 8 ohm cabs in series to get 16 ohm. A series box is simple enough to make.

They're not going to recommend stuff by other manufacturers, because they can't be held liable, although it shouldn't pose any problem for an amp that takes an 8 ohm speaker.

I also don't see why you couldn't use it with an OR15H if you want a cool practice rig, especially on the half power setting.

Out of curiosity, have you heard this cabinet? It's a cool idea for a mini-stack but sonically... ehh.

I have one and I agree, it sound quite shitty. My feeling is that it would sound better open-back to let the small box breath.

The only thing to say about the ppc108 is not to get one. Get a single PPC112 and you will be much happier.
