CR120h + 2 1960 lead cabs ohms

Post by Darcybrown98 » Sun Jun 02, 2019 7:38 am

Hey everyone,

I have a CR120H aswell as a full 1960 Marshall Lead stack, I am wondering if there is ANY WAY AT ALL to daisy chain the 2 8 ohm cabs wired both in series in order to obtain a load of 16 ohms

CR120h speaker output >
IN to Marshall 4x12. #1>
Out of Marshall 4x12. #1>
Marshall 4x12. #2

I know I'm the manual it says it only works with the X1 16 ohm cab, x2 16 ohm cabs or X1 8 ohm, but it mentions that they wouldn't recommend daisy chaining cabs mainly for if one of the speakers go down you loose all your signal BUT when the mention daisy chaining is that including the use of 16ohm cabs or 8ohm cabs?

Any help would be much appreciated :)


Also forgot to mention I have one cab that is modified to have an input and output plate on the back.

What sooner said, or just build a simple series box-three jacks, two outputs wired in series to one input. There are a few series/parallel boxes out there on the market, but they're not cheap for what they are. A DIY box should be under $10 for all the parts.

Those are weird 1960 cabs, unless of course you are in Canada?
