Ashdown Mag 300 4x10 Combo

Recommended Posts

Looking at the blueline speakers within my combo they are rated at 80w 6ohm
The amp output says 4ohm minimum
Does that mean the speaker side of the combo is wired in series/parallel and has a total rating of 320w 6ohm?

Thanks

would that be the same for the 4x10 deep MAG cab? as i'm sure it says its rated as 8ohms

I re-loaded a friends' MAG 410 (not sure if it was a deep) a number of years ago and the (fried!) drivers I pulled from that were all rated 6 ohms despite the connector panel saying it was an 8 ohm cab. I couldn't meter them as they were all toast. I found the power rating slightly dubious too at 450w as that would equate to 112.5w rated drivers. I think not...

It says on the back 300 rms and 500 peak

It has a spare output for min 4ohm cab but not sure what ohm rating it would be if you plugged an 8hm extension speaker cause then you'd have 6ohm + 8ohm?

I think the Ashdown ratings work rather like the old Trace ones where the full 300w is achievable at 4 ohms. You'll get a bit less at 8 ohm, probably around 220 is realistic..

As for 8 and 6 ohm cabs in parallel, this comes to 3.4 ohm total. I very much doubt your amplifier will be upset by this load. The other thing to remember is that all ratings are approximate (most eight ohm cabs meter around 5-6 ohms) and when in use, the imdepance of the drivers will change (alot!) dependant on frequency and enclosure design.

Oh, and the cab I re-drivered was just a MAG 410 cab, not the combo so no amplifier section.
