Sounds nice, and there's a redundancy there should one of the channels fail. That said, I'm kinda on the side of running everything through one channel (my SMS is #67) to get the most drive out of it, but there are good arguments to be made for both positions, not the least of which is that with two channel outputs I could direct one to my 2xE120 cab and one to my K120 with individual volume adjustments... but that is waaaay more complicated than this needs to be!

Now I just run one channel on 4 ohms into the 2x12" cab.

Chuckles wrote:Just dawned on me... if I were to split from the SMS to two channels of the MosValve, is there a problem with running one channel of the power amp into 8 ohms and the other into 4? I believe they are discrete channels when run in stereo mode, but I can't find any lit on it...
(Yeah, I know.. I said KISS... but a guy's gotta wonder about such things and explore them, no? )
