I have a two part question 🤔. I have my two amplifiers listed above. I have both electric and electric acoustic guitars. I'm learning how to play and bought the 50 watt acoustic Amp as I really like the sound of over wound humbuckers through it for heavy slow blues.
First question, keeping the AS50D as the main sound, can I connect it through/to the 100 watt Marshall? Both are 4 ohms and I would like the maximum amount of power to drive my 4 x 12" cabinet of 8 ohm Jensen Tornadoes that are wired in series for the 4 ohm 100 watt MG HDFX. Then I would have 150 watts total to drive my 400 watt total limit.
Question two, can I connect my 50 watt AS50D Amp to my 4 x 12" speaker cabinet by running a cable from the back of my Amp to the cabinet. I have footswitch, line out and (effects loops) send and return Jack's to use.
Even though my 4 x 12" cabinet would be very under powered. I would like to hear the sound of the AS50D through those speakers. I'm new to guitar and don't want to ruin any of my equipment. I did also have a guitar made through two luthiers, I also made the 4 x 12" cabinet to match my guitar. I call them Snort and the box.
I have the components for the sound I'm looking for, now I need to combine them all together. I truly appreciate guidance from the technical support team at Marshall.
God bless you for your time and kindness. Thank you, Eric Dailey
You could run a cable from the ‘Line Out’ socket on the AS50 to the CD input on the front of the MG100HDFX, then you’d effectively be using the MG as a slave amp.
There is no speaker output on the back of the AS50, and so it can not be plugged into an external cabinet.
With the 4X 8 Ohm speakers wired in series would give an overall Impedance of 32 Ohms.
If all the speakers were wired in parallel the total Impedance would be 2 Ohms, this is too low and would damage the amp…
There is no way of wiring 4X 8 Ohm speakers to achieve 4 Ohms.
