« on: May 16, 2006, 06:07:55 PM »
ok today i had my 210xlt rewired to 2ohm great works lovely with my bbt500h. Now for the evening my mate Lee also a bass player was gigging in a local pub this evening he has a laney rig 500 watt dp something or other and a laney 410 buring the 1st number of the set his amp went down so he asked for my rig being a bit fond of my eden i just gave him my yamaha head bbt500h 500 in to 2 ohm he took it off me hooked it up sounded allright then a strong smell of burning filled the room on closer inspection it was coming from the laney. Basically what we want to know is have we knackerd his speakers they stink of burning. his 410 is 8 ohm by the way. talk about opps

If you just connected the Yamaha to the Laney 8 ohm cabinet, it would output 125 watts. That's safe, unless you turned it WAY up to compensate for the lack of power (compared to the Laney 500 watt amp). If you (or he) drove the Yamaha into clipping for a while it may very well damage the speakers...
