  • HB vintage vertical 2x12 can arrived, one question...

    I got my Harley Benton vertical 2x12 cab today. This was such a killer deal at $307 shipped and it's equipped with Celestion vintage 30's! I just have one question though; on the back there is the input jack and there is also a 'through' jack. Can someone please tell me what this jack is for? Thank you.

    Hooking another cab. If it came with a manual it should tell you if it maintains the impedance or halves it.

      Is this cab powered?

        No it's not powered and it has 8 impedance it doesn't say whether it splits the impedance or not it only came with a one page safety warnings.

          Man, I gotta hear the verdict on a 300 dollar V30 cab

          -most v30 twin cabs are 600-900 dollars

          Break that thing in and report back!

            The through should just be an outout. You can run another 8ohm cab from it from a single 4ohm amp output. (daisy-chained)
            You also could run each cab from two separate 4ohm amp outputs. Just depends on how you want to run your cabling, and what the amp has for outputs.

              Yep; it's for daisychaining two cabs from one output.

              The question is whether it puts the two cabs in series or in parallel. Most likely it'd be parallel.
              Try plugging a cable into the Through jack for a second while playing at low volume.
              If you still get sound, it's parallel. If your cab cuts out, it's wired for series.
              (Don't continue run your amp without sound; amps need a speaker load.)

              If it's parallel, adding another 8 Ohm cab would give a 4 Ohm load as dave74 said.
              If it's series, adding another 8 Ohm cab would give a 16 Ohm load.

                Mike, what kind of head are you running through it?

                  I could be tempted to get one of those.

                    I was looking for a 1x12 for my G12H blackback. I could buy the HB for $144 sell the V30 for ~ $70 real fast on eBay and have a great cab for $74 bucks.

                      My home-build 1x12 has a cab-thru/out that maintains the impedance (parallel) so one of us could tell you just by seeing how it’s wired up or from a schematic.

                      I’m tempted to get one as it’s literally cheaper than buying 2 V30s and if I don’t like the cabinet I can put them in one of my Marshall cabs. Makes me wonder if they’re selling them at a loss.

                        I would assume it is a parallel jack so weird that they call it "through' since the jacks are wired the same. Would be easy to check with a meter, but I'm assuming you don't have one? Or just take the back off and take a picture of it.

                          Agreed. a $300 V30 cab is a no lose proposition in my mind.

                            That's a disturbingly good deal!

                              Okay but we all need to space out our purchase times so they don’t figure they’ve cornered the market or they won’t stay $300 for long!
